¨ Creative Drama:
Customized programs including Theater Games, Fairytale Theater, Scene Study, Voice and Movement, Play Performance. We have a selection of scripts for young actors drawn from history, myths, fairytales, and dramatic literature.
¨ Shakespeare for Kids:
Students learn about the Immortal Bard’s life and work through games and exercises, and perform edited versions of his classic plays.
¨ Literature Alive:
Students bring life to literary characters by performing scenes from books they are reading for class.
“Through the creative dramatic presentations our kids put on, they learned to develop self-esteem, confidence, and public speaking skills. We would definitely like to have the program back again."
