Acting Out… That is Parent-Approved

Children build their own puppets and give them a voice through group performances and peer interactions. The theater workshops encourage mini superstars to act out interpretations of their favorite fairytales, while placing an emphasis on child development and socialization. Throughout the performing process, your little one will also gain confidence, strengthen communication skills, and make friends.
