Many of the workshops, classes, performances and stories can be customized to meet your needs ie: classroom or school theme. All programs are entertaining and educational, whether acting in a medieval story or enjoying a performance of "Betsy Ross!"

OVER THE RAINBOW: is a rainbow of classes for the young ones with many exciting themes! Storytelling, Creative Drama, Music, Movement, Song , and Pantomime are all activities that bring enjoyment to and enhance a child's self-confidence and lively sense of creativity! Some themes are: Weather, Animals, Nursery Rhymes, Our World, Family Life, etc. I can personalize a program to fit your classroom theme. (4-6 yrs)

AROUND THE WORLD WITH CREATIVE DRAMA & MIME: This is a multi-cultural creative drama/movement workshop which includes music and dance from different countries! Mime is incorporated in order to explore a country's topography--such as mesas, mountains, etc.--which encourages an understanding of the country, the people and their way of life. (7-11 yrs)


THE EARTH'S 7 CONTINENTS: Go on an African Safari! Explore the frigid Antarctic! Go on an Australian "walk-about"-plus 4 other Continent Adventures! Experience one or all as a series of workshops. (4-11 yrs)


WALK A MILE IN MY SHOES: Learn to act and develop self-confidence through theatre exercises in Characterizations, Movement, Pantomime, Role-Playing, and Improvisation! And as the title implies, we can all learn ways to develop Empathy for one another. Imagination through the Creative Drama experience lends itself to an exciting program! (7-11 yrs)

MIME WITH ME!: Have fun learning the basic techniques of The Art of Mime! Children develop spatial awareness, imagination, and self-confidence in working solo or with others and, of course, hone their sense of humor! They will learn some mime routines to take with them. (8-11 yrs)

WISE PEOPLE OF GOTHAM: Based on a traditional story, this Creative Drama session allows the children to step back in time and experience a slice of the Medieval Days. The villagers work together as a community to solve their dilemma of a cruel King's interference in their lives. (9-11 yrs)


LIFE IN ANCIENT EGYPT: explores different facets of daily life through Creative Drama activities. Animals of the Nile River and the half human/half animal "Gods" of the ancients are acted out. "Building" pyramids with the use of levers, using mime to show what objects they might take with them in the "afterlife", and skits all make for an educational, imaginative, and fun workshop! (9-11/12 yrs)


A DANGEROUS MISSION!: A team of astronauts and scientists are headed to the space station "Discovery" to find the solution to a problem that has plagued man and womankind for centuries. Unfortunately they were sucked in by the infamous BLACK HOLE! There is only one way to return to Earth: Where do they go? What must they do? Help unravel the mystery through this inventive Creative Drama class through Acting and Craft Activities.  This is a 6 week class for (7-11yrs)


NOW WE'RE COOKING!: Let's go to our pretend kitchen and cook up some "faux" (fake) food!  Through creative drama and movement we'll discuss gardens and planting and all kinds of vegetables. With the use of props and lots of imagination the class will rustle up: A fish fry--with fishing, of course; Cookie baking; Giant Stew; French pancakes (crepes); and of course Pizza!   (Aprons will be worn by the cooks, to make it seem like an authentic cooking show!)  This is a 5-6 week class for (4-6yrs)
