Story Drama Begins September 30th for Children ages 3 ½ – 6

By | September 29, 2019

This one hour program is an ideal introduction to the magical world of theatre. Each six week session at the Children’s Theatre at Willow Lawn explores a different set of books inspired by the selected theme, and classic stories come alive as students delve into the imaginary worlds of their favorite books. Using age-appropriate creative drama, experienced Virginia Rep teaching artists guide the participants through a fun, interactive, multi-sensory journey into a work of children’s literature.

Each Story Drama lesson presents a problem paralleling the theme from the chosen book. The teaching artists take on different character roles as the story unfolds, while encouraging the children to offer ideas and suggestions on ways to solve the presented problem, eventually discovered within the pages of the book.
