Our classes for young children build on their active imaginations while guiding them towards an understanding of what it takes to act in a play. This process has three steps: the use of body, voice and imagination; the development of characters; and the understanding of how stories go together.

Creative Drama
          Come play with us as we use our bodies and voices to act out stories from our imagination and favorite books. Lessons will teach various theatre and acting techniques which will be used in bringing the story to the stage.
