Character Creations

Recommended for grades 2-6.

How do performers use their imaginations to bring characters to life? To make their performances believable, actors use three tools: the voice, the body, and the imagination. In this workshop, students will use these three tools to “get into character” and embark on a character adventure.

Mask Menagerie

Recommended for grades 4-12.

Great stories require great imagination! In this workshop, students will learn about the ancient art of mask making. Then, they will use their own imagination to design and create a mask inspired by their favorite character.

Sensory Adventure

Recommended for grades 4-12.

Students will be led through creative exploration of the performer’s experience with textures, sounds, and movement in the theater. This workshop is designed for students who identify as being on the autism spectrum or as having sensory-processing disorders.
