It’s inspiring to teach new readers to lift a story from the page with only their bodies and imaginations. Young ones become excited about reading through the art of simple play!
Kids will have great fun improvising characters and story lines. We will teach them to trust the process of making it up as they go, while creating scenes and characters expressing a wide range of emotions.
This class is the foundation of actor training and will teach character development, movement and voice work.
Come explore the wonderful world of musical theatre. We can perform a wide range of musicals or pick excerpts from current hits. Pick your favorite musical(s) and let us bring them to life.
There is no greater imagination than that of youth. Stone Soup teaching artists will guide students’ story-telling skills and teach them to apply conflict, character development, storyline and resolution to the written word. Program culminates in performance.
Regardless of age, Shakespeare’s poetry and magic is timeless. Younger folks delight in the fantasy worlds created by the Bard’s language. Teens identify with strengths and angst of characters as they begin to take themselves more seriously. Something for everyone.
Leave the details of the school play to us. We will provide a director and an adaptation of children’s literature, 30-60 minutes in length. Our teaching artists will help kids explore the fun and excitement that goes hand-in-hand with creating live theatre. We strive to teach kids how to find the best in themselves, and go on to share it!
