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 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!”
Jim Scheele
“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.”
Matt Sloan
“I’ve been consistently impressed with Child’s Play. From rehearsals where they engage and encourage even the shyest kid (not mine) to performances where they pull together a diverse group of abilities and enthusiasm to a cohesive and complex show - it’s all fantastic!”
