Children will be grouped together for the pleasure of performance on stage, from 5 to 9 years old and from 10 to 13 years old for theatre, dance and scenography. They will create their own costumes, all guided by the experienced eyes of guest artist teachers Samantha Farrar (movement/dance), Claire Beaman (scenic painting and costumes) Alexx Evergreen and Cindy Beth Davis-Dykema (acting and improvisation). This week-long session runs for five afternoons from 1-4pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and concludes with a presentation for families and friends at 3pm on the final day.
