Musical Players

For grades 1-3 and 4-6.

Improvisation and theater games help stoke creativity, create an ensemble and develop the spirit of play as students rehearse a complete piece of theater in the semester. A great session 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. They also amass skills in singing, dance, speech, and improvisation taught by master teachers and performers at the top of their field.

Our Players Series programming meets in Brooklyn Heights. Participating schools for 2019-2020 include PS154 and East Village Community School.

The Big Twist: A New Musical Logo for Middle School Acting Class

The Big Twist

$440 For the Semester

Grades 1-4 | Wednesdays

In this acting class, students get to perform a brand new musical based on The Wizard of Oz.
The Wicked Witch of the South wants to return Oz to a time when WITCHES reigned supreme, and all was evil. Summoning a dark magic Tornado, the Wicked Witch of the South sends Oz hurtling into an alternate Oz. With the Yellow Brick road destroyed, the Wizard left powerless, and the citizens of Oz scattered to the Wind, our heroes are forced into unlikely partnerships to stop the Witch and restore the world to order. The Wizard of Oz meets The Tempest.

Class culminates in a premiere of a movie starring the students, filmed over the last few days of the session.

“Our son had such a wonderful experience at Child's Play! Not only did it help bring out his inner creativity, Child's Play also helped instill a sense of confidence in him. We thoroughly enjoyed the final performance - like all of the parents in attendance, we wore smile as wide as the Grand Canyon throughout. This has truly been a wonderful learning experience for our son, culminating in an unforgettable evening!”

“Our daughter has done two Child's Play NY productions and both experiences and productions were fantastic. Everyone connected with Child's Play NY is very caring and attentive, while making the process of acting, singing and learning a whole play very enjoyable. And while my daughter isn't the most outgoing kid and has some anxiety issues, she always looked forward to each rehearsal and really surprised us how well she performed in front of a room full of people. Cannot recommend Child's Play NY highly enough.”
