This workshop is a perfect introduction to the performing arts. The session will begin with a reading of Mr. Goat's Valentine by Eve Bunting.

They will then use props and their imagination to turn their story into a play! Parents are invited to the last five minutes of our class to attend a (very) original play by their own mini playwrights. Let your child to really dive into their imagination while learning about theatre, acting, playwriting, and performing! Registration Required.
