Students create a magical evening, celebrating the art of poetry using the works of poet Shel Silverstein. This ensemble based performance piece has a curriculum that has strong emphasis on literacy through the arts, using the verses from one of the most beloved children’s poet of our time. Students in the workshop will study and choose a selection of poems and through a rehearsal process, bring the stories and characters alive with song, movement and text. The fully staged performance will highlight the individual student’s acting technique as well as exposure to an ensemble- building process through games, warm ups and performance experience. This program is ideal for young performers who love to shine!
Workshop ages 6 and up.
Dates: Mon-Fri, April 18 – 22, 2016, 12-5pm
Meets at the First Congregational Church, 906 Main St, Williamstown
