Program Overview

Is someone in your home running around dressed up like a knight or princess? Or how about performing drum solos on your pots and pans? Is their imagination overflowing with characters and stories? It may be time to sign up your growing young actor for the Alley Theatre’s Play Makers camp!

Play Makers participants join their peers for a full rotation of group activities designed to help even the most timid child find the confidence to step onto the stage. Alley Master Teaching Artists guide fun and informative lessons that teach theatre skills in improvisation, dance and movement, visual story-telling, and character development. Your young creative masterminds will learn performance skills here that they will use their whole lives.
