This program is designed to introduce young students to theatre in a fun, supportive, and exciting way-no pressure and stress, everyone plays and everyone participates. Your young actor will learn how to use their voice to tell a story, create characters with their bodies, ignite their imaginations and work together as a team to put on a show!
