Is your child the one who sings all day? Dances to every tune? Pretends or has imaginary friends? Loves to dress up? This is the perfect first step into the wonderful world of theatre for them. Using props, costumes, improv, puppets, and creating characters, not only builds a child's language skills, but also provides the makings of stage play. Theatre tots is a fun, learning experience that will engage and develop the pint-sized player with a blend of fine arts and academics.
Designed to teach the foundations of acting for kids aching to be a Broadway star. From Broadway basics to staging, cast members are highly involved in creative drama activities. Cast members will re-create musical theatre numbers from favorites like Annie, Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and more. They will sing, dance, act and soon be the triple threat of the young set.
