Write, Create, Action!
June 26-30, ages 5-10
Children will write their own adaptations of well-known fairy tales, folk tales, and fables. They’ll focus on learning and implementing parts of a story, using a storyboard and tableaux (stage pictures), and creating complete characters with unique voices and movement. The program will end with a short share performance of original plays!
Creating and Performing with Puppets!
July 3- 7 (except July 4). ages 8-14
Children and teens will create sock puppets—each with their own unique personality—and will learn basic puppetry skills to move and voice them their creations. The actors will perform short scripts at the end of the week in a short share performance!
Bringing Books to Life!
July 10-14, ages 5-10
Using well-loved books, children will work creatively to bring the books to life—from breaking the story down into parts, to understanding what each character wants and that character’s obstacles, and creating unique voices and movement for each character. At the end of the week, the actors will perform their stories in a share performance!
Musical Theater Moves!
July 17-21, ages 8-14
Using songs from Broadway musicals, children and teens will take the roles of characters from the song—with a focus on understanding the character’s backstory and objective, and creating unique voices and movement for each character. They’ll also help to choreograph a dance and movement piece to tell the story of their character through the song. The program will end with a short share performance!
