What you'll learn in this kids theater class:

Sing, act, and make your way into the world of set design and model making. Select a scene from a favorite show, book, movie, or your own imagination. Then build your mini-stage and make your scene come to life and learn a variety of planning and stage-craft techniques along the way. In collaboration with the wonderful team at Artbarn Community Theater, we offer the opportunity to come play with us this fall and make a scene!

  • Learn about the history of theatre and set design
