Puppetry Day with Playhouse Theatre Academy!

Sat Nov 21, 2020
2:00pm to 4:30pm
5-12, 13-17
$10 per student

Join the Playhouse on Park for a fun filled afternoon of creating puppets, storytelling, and acting out characters! Young actors will participate in age appropriate activities that teach both the basics of acting and narrative structure. Older students will also examine world styles of shadow puppetry and how they play a role in modern day theatre.

The workshops will encourage students to use their imaginations to create original stories and handcraft a puppet to take home. The hour will conclude with a chance to perform with their puppets. In addition, students would be encouraged to create a unique voice for their character.

Register today! Space is limited to 12 students per session. $10/student

*Participants are required to wear a mask and adhere to social distancing as well as a temperature check. Please see our Education Safety Plan for more details.
