WORKSHOPS

Children’s Theatre is an invaluable experience for the young person. It builds confidence, self-expression, and use of voice & body dynamics to communicate with creativity and awareness. TheatrePLAY! is made up of local theatre teaching artists committed to providing theatre/dance/mindfulness in the classroom for your students. Our program was developed at Elementary Schools in Burbank, California, where we have provided workshops over the past ten years.
