Theatre: July 20 – 24, 1 – 2:30 pm
Join FirstWorks for our week-long Virtual Theater Camp and get ready to stretch your imagination (remember plays are called PLAY for a reason)! Together with theater educator Sophie Siegel-Warren, puppeteer Heather Henson, costume designer Machine Dazzle, and spoken word artist Chachi Carvalho, students will learn the basics of playwriting and stage presence, including crafting creative monologues and developing unique characters who they’ll bring to life from home. No previous experience necessary! Grade 5 – 7.
