At TCAN, arts education is our priority – but your children will only know they’re having fun! Pocket Full of Tales Theatre Company presents brand-new, scripted original musicals as the leaping-off point for our Summer Musical Theatre Workshops. Kids try out creative art & set building techniques, learn new acting & singing styles and breathe life into their favorite stories – acting and dancing their way through a fun-filled week. On Friday, everyone’s a star as we perform for our friends and families.
For half-day workshops, please have your child bring a nut-free snack and a water bottle. For full-day workshops, your child must bring a nut-free lunch, two nut-free snacks, and a water bottle. Your child should be dressed in clothes that can get messy! Upon registration, download an Emergency Information Form at the bottom of this page and bring the completed form with you to the first day of class. All workshops are grouped by age and taught by professional theater artists. Prorated fees and/or partial attendance are not available.
