Fee: $120. There is a once a year additional $15 registration fee. 

Discount: We do offer a 10% sibling discount.

Class Description: Students will participate in games, exercises, and scenes to allow them to gain comfort and technique in portraying a character onstage. Students will both learn about puppets and create puppets to work with during the program. Topics will include basic scene work, storytelling, puppetry, and movement. Students will be challenged to create characters while utilizing both their bodies and their puppets. Though the emphasis of the class will be on developing skills and not on a final performance, family and friends are invited to the last class to see students present poems, monologues, or scenes. The newly created puppets will be incorporated into the final share day at the conclusion of the program.

Pre-Requisite: It is strongly encouraged that students take either CREATIVE KIDS or PUTTIN ON A SHOW for a full year before registering for this class. Please contact us if you have questions.
