“Play Me a Story”
Saturday, September 14 - November 23rd
10:30 AM | Ages 4 - 10
“Play Me a Story” is an interactive reader’s theater workshop series for children between the ages of 4-10. To set the scene, our Affiliate Artists perform a staged reading of a popular children’s book. Following the performance, the audience is asked to participate in a workshop relating to the story. The workshop may focus on a particular character, place or situation that the story illuminates.
Workshops will engage and inspire through vocalization, games, improvisation and movement. Join our professional actors as we explore new and classic children’s stories while encouraging your child’s love of theater and literature.
