EduFeature_LITTLE KIDS-Ages.jpg

Our Little Kids program offers young children an opportunity to try out the world of theater. Students will build self-confidence, learn how to use their imagination and creativity to tell stories, and explore the arts through dramatic play. In our STORYtheater workshops, we work with our students to create their own modest, unique stage adaptations of picture books. Students in our Skills & Craft workshops dig a little deeper into fundamental artistic skills such as using tools and materials imaginatively or learning how to take creative risks. Our workshops are welcoming and supportive to kids with all levels of experience, whether it's their first time in a theater class or they've been singing and dancing all their young life!

Kidz Bop: Halloween Hits

In this workshop young actors have fun learning fundamentals of musical theater—strong voices, expressive movement, and character creation—just in time to try out their next Halloween costumes.

Saturdays, SEPT 9-OCT 14 from 8:45 am-10:15 am
