The Elementary School Theater Club meets once a week for a dynamic class of theater games and interesting improvisational prompts to kickstart the students' imaginations while they work together to create original scenes. Each week the students hone their performance skills for the stage. They are encouraged to trust their imaginative instincts and assert their creative ideas while listening and responding to the creative ideas of their castmates. By problem-solving collaboratively and imagining collectively, students discover an expansive field of possibilities for creative storytelling through theatrical performance.
