July: "Funky Fairytales" Children's Theatre Workshop

Our annual week-long Children's Theatre Workshop is coming up fast!! Please check your dates again: The workshop takes place Monday-Friday, July 23-27 with a Friday evening performance of "Funky Fairytales" on July 27th at 7:00pm.




The workshop sessions include two 30-minute sessions each day; one in acting, and one in voice/diction and movement. Through fun and engaging games, the kids will learn some techniques without feeling that they're learning! The second hour is devoted to each of the two groups rehearsing a short play. The plays are comedic adaptations of familiar fairy tales. Having each group doing a short play allows for the children to have larger roles and more stage time. Although we have a larger group this year and may have some non-speaking roles, we intend to make sure every kid has some engaging stage time whether they are speaking, acting, or moving.


The culminating Friday evening performance will include a demonstration of games the kids played throughout the week and a presentation of their plays. Our mission is to not only provide a venue for kids to creatively express themselves, but also to expose them to the world of theatre and cultural literacy through the stories they dramatize.
