Programs

Two Week Programs:

Our two week programs are for students in rising grades K-2.  In this workshop we introduce children to the stage, work on skills such as projection, diction, and expression, and allow students to display a great deal of creativity as they produce their final show.  The director provides a general storyline and allows the children to “flesh out” the story and their characters for the final script.  Students perform a “Family and Friends” show on the final day of the session at the workshop location. We accept an average of 12-15 applicants into the two week program.
