Theater Masks  Let's Workshop a Show!

Join a professional director, playwright, and adult actors to workshop a real children's theater play. The play is a stage adaptation of the famous children's book series "Falcon Quinn." There are lead roles for students, and your child could ORIGINATE a role and be the very first to get to perform it! Not only is that great for their resume, IT’S SUPER FUN! The rehearsals will culminate in a staged reading performance of the script with professional actors for an audience. Your kids will even get input on the development of the script. They'll be able to provide feedback directly to the writer as we edit the script during the workshop phase. Just like Broadway workshops, this is a very unique process that is enviable for actors to get to be a part of-no matter what age!
