The Little Dragons
For Ages 5-6
Directed by Rebecca Wahls
Dragons and epic tales abound in our Mini Actors' Showcase! Our youngest actors will journey through ancient China in a fun-filled play while learning the basics of acting. With a format specifically designed to help each actor grow their creativity, this program is a fun, interactive way to introduce young people to the art of storytelling.
In this 60-minute class, our youngest actors are introduced to the building blocks of acting and theater. Great for new and returning actors, this class encourages students to use their imaginations in a fun and safe environment, and gain confidence as they learn the process of putting on a play. In addition to growing through acting training, the cast will have the experience of performing for a live audience in Mason’s Harris Theatre at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 3rd and Sunday, June 4th before our Young Actors’ Showcase.
Students are expected to attend all rehearsals and both performances.
