This one is for all of you parents with a Minecraft loving pre-teen at home.

Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor will host a four-class series on Wednesdays from Oct. 28 through Nov. 18 titled “Minecraft Interactive Lessons.” The classes run from 4 p.m. until 5 p.m. though the Nov. 11 (Veteran’s Day) class will be extended until 6 p.m.

Students aged nine to 13 with some Minecraft proficiency already under their belts, are invited to take part. Basic controls of the game must already be understood.

All participants must provide their own Mac or PC laptop. (No Kindles, iPads, iPods, iPhones, tablets, Andriods, etc). Cost is $100 per student for the four sessions and class size is limited to 12 kids.

For those who don’t know, the super addicting Minecraft is a computer game in which players must collect virtual blocks to construct intricate buildings and structures.

Two local high school freshman, Mason Cohen of Pierson High School and Miller Croke of Southampton High School will instruct the class. The pair, who have recently launched the business MSquared Adventures, have been hosting private Minecraft events for the past two years.

“It’s so great to be able to support these two terrifically talented high school students as they launch their new business MSquared Adventures, experts in the world of all things Minecraft,” said Tracy Mitchell, Executive Director of Bay Street. “Our Community Connections Council (3CO) has worked very hard to bring this type of programming to Bay Street, which supports the local community in every way. It takes a village, and we have one of the best.”

Advance payment is required to secure a spot. For more information, go to www.baystreet.org and fill out the required forms and provide check or credit card payment to Bay Street Theater. The sign-up forms should be available starting today, Oct. 5.
