Players Series - ages 7-11

Players start the week with a clear goal at hand…a play by Friday! Kids work from scripts, develop characters, and collaborate with actors and directors for a production they can be proud of. Improvisation and theater games spark creativity as campers rehearse for their performance. A great week for kids to increase confidence, craft, and their ability to work as part of an ensemble.

Kids learn how to create a character from a place of instinct and play. Depending on the session they also amass skills in singing, dance, speech, and improvisation taught by master teachers and performers at the top of their field.

Sessions for ages 7-11 in Brooklyn Heights will include Adventures in Musical Theater, Shakespeare Players: A Midsummer Nights Dream, Mythology Players and Hogwarts School.

Ever wonder what the snakes on Medusa’s head talk about? Ever seen an infomercial for Arachne’s loom? Do you know what you would do if you came face-to-face with a Minotaur? In this dynamic week, classic Greek myths come alive as kids stage and perform short plays based on classic tales!
