Fall 2016: Classes


"ELVES" (ages 4-5)

When a magical Toy Box arrives, the kids discover that any toy put inside instantly comes to life! Soon Barbie is racing with Batman, Pocahontas is hiding from Cowboy Woody, and the Baby Doll, Little Bear and Tigger are making mischief! Can the Clown help, or does the Dinosaur need to put his foot down? Lots of laughs and silly surprises as the toys all learn how to get along.

This play is just right for non-readers who love to play-act and pretend. The class also plays lots of imagination games that gently encourage participation in a nurturing environment.

So lift the lid and peek inside. “THE SECRET TOY BOX” has lots of fun just waiting to come to come and play!

"FAUNS" (ages 6-8)

Did you ever wish kids could be in charge? Sydney and his friends sure did. When a mysterious magical charm makes their dream come true, the kids get to do anything they want. Now there is candy for every meal, school is closed forever, and everything in the toy store is theirs for the taking! But along with the fun comes more trouble than they bargained for. Is it possible to have too much of a good thing?

This musical is excellent for new and non-readers. We also play lots of fun theater games that nurture creativity in a positive atmosphere.

So prepare yourself. There’s no telling what could happen “IF KIDS RULED THE WORLD!”

"CENTAURS" (ages 8-12)

The pre-teens who live in Windale have started to notice strange things happening. Like sometimes people levitate. Sometimes things disappear. Then the kids begin to develop their own astonishing powers.

Soon, one can turn things invisible, another can stop time, and one can even see into the future. But with their amazing magical gifts, they discover this is only the beginning of a much bigger secret.

Along with this musical, the class plays exciting theater games that build confidence and creativity in a climate that is supportive, lively and fun.

So bid your ordinary live goodbye. “TEEN MAGIC” will put you under its spell!
