“She LOVES the class! Thank you for being so much fun and professional!” raves workshop mom L. Forkin. “I could see so much joy and happiness in my daughter’s eyes and she told me ‘Mommy, I can’t stop smiling cheek to cheek!’ ” exclaims B. Alvarez. Acting! Singing! Dance! Crafts! Make-up! Costumes! and a live performance on stage highlight these fun and exciting theatre workshop for kids 4 to 6. This internationally acclaimed Santa Monica Playhouse program offers a one-of-a-kind experience where Early Stagers revel in the joy of creativity and self-expression, working with professional actors who have dedicated their lives to sharing the magic of live theatre. “Our daughter and son really did love every minute – they had a productive, interactive and hugely enjoyable few weeks” says mom N. Gestetner. Youngsters sing songs, play theatre games, bring favorite fairytales to life, work with crafts and props, and perform on stage with members of the “big kids” workshops. Emphasis is on sharing, caring, and having a fun time. Kids learn to improve their communication and team-building skills, overcome shyness and build self-esteem as they make new friends, practice focusing their energy and expand their imagination. The two-week and three-week Early Stages theatre camp sessions also provide children with the confidence needed to excel in upcoming school programs and activities - a great way to introduce the arts at an early age. The workshop stimulates cognitive, language, social, emotional and physical skills in the early stages of a child’s development in a fun, comfortable, and supportive atmosphere. The innovative Santa Monica Playhouse theatre-for-youth programs, now in their 43rd year, have been developed from work done with more 50,000 students locally, nationally and internationally. Daily Variety calls it “One of the best in the country!” Mondays through Fridays, 9am to noon. Session I: June 17-28. Session II: July 22-August 9, 2013. Financial aid is available.
