Atten-tion! Today we will follow our leader. When they walk, we walk. When they jump, we jump. When they wiggle, we wiggle. That is until it’s time for the next leader. Join us, as we take turns copying each other being as silly as we can.July 18, July 25: Dice Story
Emotions are hard for us actors. Fortunately, we have dice to tell us how to feel. A new puppy. The dice say we’re sad. It’s raining outside. The dice say we’re hungry. Roll for emotions to see how you feel about our theatre game!August 1, August 8: Imagination Station
When is a banana not a banana? When it’s a boomerang! Or a baby! Or a boomerang baby! We’ll use our imagination to turn items into all sorts of weird and wonderful objects.August 15, August 22, August 29: Half a Play

In theatre, we can’t just warm up our bodies, we also have to warm up our voices! Breathe in, breathe out. Hiss like a snake for as loooooooong as you can. Stretch your voice up high and way down low as we explore all the sounds we can make with our mouths.September 19, September 26: Telephone
