Our Big Kids workshops focus on building a strong foundation for young people in the many aspects of theater performance, singing, dancing, and even design. Students start the foundation for good performance practices and techniques through games and exercises.

Big Kids learn that, just like any sport or subject in school, performing on stage requires studying and practicing the right way in order to get the most out of their creativity and imaginations.

Performance Magic

Abracadabra, alakazam! Acting and Magic have more in common than you might think.  Creating a character, entertaining an audience, and telling a believable story are all vital parts of presentation.  Students will love learning new tricks (both figuratively and literally), all while strengthening the fundamentals of performing.  Sign up today, before this class vanishes before your eyes!

DATES: Saturdays, March 23–April 10, 9:00–10:30 am

Puppet Theatre

Puppets come in many shapes and variations, and often help bring a show to life.  Learn how to bring a puppet to life, and make some of your own.  This class will explore many different forms of puppetry, and give students the opportunity to showcase their creations with their own show.
