CREATIVE DRAMATICS CLASSES – Ages 2-4


Shannonigans Theatre Workshop
created these all new classes with the notion of providing creative process-based theatre training for young actors in a supportive and positive classroom environment. Imagination is the key to creativity, and we believe it should be nurtured at every age.  Our methods of teaching through play build confidence, encourage self-expression and help students discover both the world around them and their own unique potential! Singing, dancing, pretending, creating; what more could your want for your youngest artist?

Story Starters: Ages 2-4

The perfect class for kids with big imaginations and short attention spans!  We will combine story time, art, music, and drama to explore a different children’s book each week.  Creating, pretending, singing and dancing, all while learning important social skills and building confidence; this class has something for everyone!


“Once Upon a ___” Mad-Lib Fairytales: Ages 3-5

We all know the most popular fairy tales, but what if we mixed them all up?  We will use all kinds of theatre games to warm up our bodies and get our imaginations working to tell some crazy stories.  Then we will create our own “fractured fairytale” to be performed on the last day of class.

Hocus Folkus!: Ages 4-6

This introduction to Folktales will expose students to different cultures and traditions from all over the world.  Holistic Drama challenges the children to problem solve and create a spontaneous “play” with the teacher in-role.  Using this and other techniques and games we will explore the storytelling elements of classic folktales.  We’ll then re-tell one in our own magical way creating a fun final performance for family and friends!


Dramacise: Ages 3-4

Produced through Pocket Full of Tales Theatre Company, www.pocketfulloftales.com


Pocket Full of Tales Theatre Company presents a perfect introduction to the world of theatre.  This process based class begins with children being challenged to create spontaneous “plays” with their teacher in role.  As children become more comfortable with pretending they will create a performance to be viewed by parents on the last day of class.  We’ll sing, we’ll dance….we’ll celebrate our magnificent imaginations!
