Most children adore animals and love pretending to be animals or to care for them.  In this session of Tiny Tots Theater, we’ll put a special emphasis on acting out animal stories as we practice working together to bring a story to life in a creative drama format.  The class will culminate in a short performance of The Lorax  for family and friends on the last day of class.
Tiny Tots Theater classes offer 4-6 year olds a magical opportunity to bring their favorite stories to life. We use music, poetry, costumes, and imagination to “play” out stories each week and then form these experiences into a “show” for parents.
