With theatre activities, kids will awaken their inner dramatist. They can act, direct, dance, and sing for an applause-ready audience. They can even make props to enhance the show.

There are many different ways to help a future star shine. Lip-synching, mysteries, musicals, and pantomime are all indoor activities that will feed the acting bug.
