NOW ENROLLNG FOR SPRING 2020!
TIGER TALES THEATRE is a fun theatre-arts and acting class that introduces students to colorful, larger-than-life animal stories from around the world!
From learning about the real-life animals of Asia, Africa, and Australia to exploring ancient legends and native folklore from North and South America to discovering fantastic tales about Bigfoot, the Yeti, and the Loch Ness Monster, kids will love every moment of this year-long animal adventure!
These wonderful stories - drawn from world cultures, mythology, folklore, and beloved children's literature - will enchant and delight students as we work together each week to bring a new tale to life using drama and movement.
Participants will learn basic acting skills, performance techniques, and theatre fundamentals while having fun in a safe, creative, encouraging, and non-competitive environment.
Combining world history and cultures, geography, science and zoology, literature, fantasy and adventure, and the magic of theatre, this class is a wonderful way to get kids energized about stories and about the endlessly fascinating animal world around us! Plus, it's a wonderful introduction to theatre arts like pantomime, improvisation, acting, and creative movement for young performers of all experience levels!
This class will end with a presentation for friends and family where each child will play the role of an important character for the audience!
