Students will be captivated by storytelling at its best. Act out a different drama and character every week from African princesses to funny monkeys, to swamp monsters, to Roald Dahl’s “Enormous Crocodile.”
The children will turn these beautiful stories into plays and explore new realms of their imagination with music, movement and poetry. They will present a show in the last lesson with the older group.
