Learn the tricks of the trade! Students will act out myths and folktales from different cultures and become the trickster themselves! By practicing team building, self-expression, and gaining self-confidence, these young actors will transform their bodies and voices to bring fun animal stories to life. Through song, movement, and improvisation, these young tricksters will create unique characters, learn about other cultures, and explore storytelling traditions from all over the world. Family and friends are invited to attend a sharing of our favorite stories on the last day of class. (Due to the Columbus Day weekend, there will be no class on October 11.)
