We believe that through the theatrical arts, children build confidence, compassion and creativity.
In our programs, kids are empowered as they live inside of stories and characters and develop their skills as actors.
Our mission is to inspire young people to explore the creative process in order to become engaged participants in their world.

I love the fact that when Jocelyn teaches me, my mind opens wide to her acting magic of mime or humor, even how you can turn an ordinary classroom into a magical land.
Greer Gibney, Age 10
Our daughter’s ongoing enthusiasm for Jocelyn’s classes is a testament to Jocelyn’s skill and warmth. While Jocelyn is able to draw on her expertise in theatre to teach real acting practices and techniques, she does so in a way which inspires confidence and enthusiasm in kids of all levels of interest in drama.

Jocelyn is an amazing teacher who brings out the best in her students. They are enthusiastic, eager and earnest about their performances. She has been a joy and mentor to my daughter.

Jocelyn is a teaching artist full of nurturing vitality and creativity. When I have observed her classes, and seen the final productions I am struck by how much the students are learning and how much fun they are having. Her classes are among the most popular that we offer at Packer.

I highly recommend Jocelyn Greene and Child's Play. My 7 year old son was in the summer program and was so excited to go everyday. Jocelyn does wonderful work with the kids. She is both loving and supportive as well as professional. It was a wonderful confidence building experience for my son.
