Story Theatre – Charlotte’s Web (1st-3rd grade) 9-10:30 a.m.

Fern adopts a piglet and names him Wilbur. But when he becomes a nice little fat pig, and is about to meet the fate of all other pigs, Fern is upset. Fortunately for Fern and Wilbur, there’s a spider named Charlotte. In this class we take one of our favorite stories, Charlotte’s Web, and create a play! We will play dress up, play, learn about storytelling, character, and generally have a great time making our favorite stories come to life! We’ll use all that we learn to create a play based on Charlotte’s Web. Students will be guided through basic theatre techniques within the framework of the story. But most of all, we will have fun inside one of our favorite stories! And then we will perform it as a showcase for friends and family.

Script from Scratch–The Potterverse (4th-6th grade) 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Join us as we use wonderful characters from the world of Harry Potter and use our imaginations to put them in new situations in our very own play! In this class, we’ll work on acting, storytelling, and playwriting skills to create a play for the showcase at the end of our class. As a class, we will brainstorm, improvise, and perform in a short play of our own creation.
