This class is for children 10 and up who have an inclination for creative work, creative writing and performing.

In this class, your child will develop an original puppet character, create it with upcycled materials, and write a scene introducing their character. This will be a superhero character with an origin story written by the students in the form of a monologue.

Learn the Rules of Improv and play Improv Games. Improvisation helps students develop their creative instincts, teamwork, and spontaneity.

Learn the skills to Storytelling by adapting a Classic Story into a live ensemble narration. From the page to the stage students will identify the key events to a story and write a script that narrates it. They will memorize their lines, block their movement, and perform the final result at the showcase.

At the end of the week, the students will invite you to attend our showcase where they will present their puppets, perform some improvised scenes, and as an ensemble tell you a story they've adapted from its original works.
