Pocket Full of Tales Theatre Company presents brand-new, scripted original musicals as the leaping-off point for our online Summer Theater Workshops. Your child will have adventures in acting, dancing, singing, and teamwork, and will work with professional actors, musicians, and theater educators in a creative, supportive environment to stage a final show – online – on the last day of class.
- At TCAN, arts education is our priority – but your children will only know they’re having fun! Kids receive interactive and personalized direction from Kristy and other experienced counselors to breathe life into classic kid’s stories – acting, dancing, and singing their way through a fun-filled theatre experience. By selecting from a variety of sessions, your child can choose what they want to do, and you get the guarantee of a rewarding and fun arts experience.
- Using the familiar Zoom platform and original scripts, music and lyrics (provided), children learn songs, play theater games and rehearse lines to create an exciting final online performance for family and friends. Single week online workshops are offered during the summer for children weekdays. (see class list for specific workshop programs, descriptions, and schedule).
