Teaching Artist Hannah Weinberg and students from "The Wiggles" Workshop, 2015

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!

Normal Normans

Where else when you're young is it okay to be as strange as you want to be?! That's the question an eager young scientist hopes to answer her when subject turns out to be exceptionally strange.
