Children's Theatre Workshops
These unique and fun filled 4-day theatre workshops include instruction in all areas of theatrical production and creative dramatics. Kids develop their performance skills as they participate in theatre games and exercises, create characters, animate stories and work as a team to build an original show from scratch. Just as importantly, they develop their creativity, self-confidence, and ability to clearly express themselves - skills that will benefit them for a lifetime.
The workshops are taught by long-time local Brian Hall, who has been acting, directing and producing theatrical presentations for over 30 years. “We really enjoy introducing children to the fun and creativity of theatre. It’s exciting for us to see their self-confidence grow, their creativity develop and to see them beaming as they hear the applause.” Brian Hall, Director.
Recommended for children ages 5 through 12. Reservations are required. All kids receive a daily snack and juice, a “Kid Cast” t-shirt and a certificate of achievement with a cast photo. Each session has a different theme and show, so kids can come back for more than one session as they develop their stagecraft.
