Twisted Tales Junior will be held from Monday, June 27, through Friday, July 1. Program hours will be 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. The cost for the one-week program is just $100.
Just like the program for ages 7 through 12, children will perform mixed-up classic stories, and will help to create some costumes, sets and props for each short play! Each session will also include acting games and activities. A final performance for families and friends will be held on the last day of the program. Adjustments are made just for the younger kids’ ages.
NBYT teaching artists don’t count on award-winning performances from kids this age, but we do try to make them comfortable on stage and make them work together as a group. We also begin to teach storytelling and playing characters—as opposed to just playing.
Also like the program for older children, the junior week will be held at Jefferson Elementary School in New Britain. Located near the Farmington Border on Horse Plain Road, Jefferson offers a 360-seat theater, a cafeteria for snacks (children should bring their own), and a playground for short outdoor breaks.
