Explore the wonderful world of story-drama with storyteller Dana Proulx-Willis as you first hear a favorite tale performed, and then bring it to life yourselves! This non-threatening form of theatre lets you be in a play and watch a play at the same time. There are many opportunities for the bold to shine and for the shy to come forward in this wonderful theatrical venue. It's “Broadway” meets “Let's Pretend” as students look at how to stage a story, from set layout to characterization, and from blocking to body positions. This workshop will engage your children in a fun way as they also learn the basics of drama and storytelling. Don't miss the adventure!
