Instructed by Connie Sponheim

Students will explore the magic of the classic fairy tale through the nurturing experience of theatre games, pantomime, and improvisation.

Creating their own original tales, the kids will experience the magic of theater and how it can enlighten, embolden and encourage them as they perform their own creation for an audience. They will explore every kind of fairy tale, from “fractured” to “enchanted,” and must be prepared to laugh and have loads of fun telling stories with movement, voice and their active imaginations. 

The class will culminate in a presentation for parents and families at WICA. Each student will also receive a free ticket to the matinee performance and a backstage tour of Whidbey Island Dance Theatre’s production of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale, “The Snow Queen.”

About WICA Conservatory
The multi-session WICA Conservatory introduces a holistic approach to theatre that includes all areas of stagecraft, creative dramatics, and acting experiences, with emphasis on development of self-esteem, self-confidence and personal expression. We believe process and product are of equal value—participants experience hands-on learning, professional instruction, internship opportunities, and performing in a first-class facility.
