Little Kids workshops offer young children an opportunity let their imaginations come to life in the world of theater! Students will build self-confidence and social skills while learning how to use their creativity and craft skills to tell live stories. 

Little Kids learn the meaning of “play” by creating their own modest, unique stage adaptations of children books by authors such as Dr. Seuss, Beatrix Potter, Shel Silverstein, Roald Dahl and others. Whether it's their first time in a theater class or they've been playing characters and singing and dancing all their young life, our workshops offer a safe and fun environment to play as they please!
