Play Days - Grades K-6 - A 4-hour workshop when public schools are not in session. This season we celebrate what makes us different. Each workshop begins with a theater game to get to know each other, then we read a story, and break that story down and create a play from it. Parents and siblings are invited to return at 4:50 to see what we've come up with. Light stage make-up, costume pieces, props are used, and the kids get to perform in the charming Fire Hall Theatre. Cost is $35, and when you sign up for more than one at a time it's just $30 each. Have more than one child in the same family who wants to participate? Additional children pay just $30 each. Were you in our summer acting camp? Take $10 off your first Play Day workshop this season! But you must register a week in advance. We have to have a minimum of 6 children and take no more than 24.
