Kids ages 9-14 are invited to register for a unique workshop in July. The Illustrated Theatre residency From Story to Stage offers young writers the opportunity to discover their own voice, imagine unique characters, play with dialogue and create settings. After each participant writes and refines a short story, together one story will be chosen to transform into a play. Writers then shift their focus to acting, and utilizing improvisation and transformation theatre techniques, develop an original play. At the end of the residency the actors perform their unique production for a live audience.
The workshop will be held on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 1-2:30pm in the Conference Room on July 15, 17, 22, 24, 29 and 31, with a performance on July 31.
