In this 90 minute weekly class, students will work with their instructor to create an original work. They will learn how to create an original character, improvise dialogue as the basis for an original script, and edit their work into a final draft. At the end of the session they will perform their original play online to share with friends and family.

Our children’s theatre program is dedicated to inspiring children and youth to become social agents by engaging with the magic of theatre. We maintain a commitment to develop in each child a keen sense moral leadership alongside their artistic achievements.
