PARENTS! Here's a creative, nurturing and exhilarating environment for your children. Discovering theatre is an energizing encounter with words, stories, and imagination.

One of the greatest gifts a child can offer is an invitation to play. In this course, adults participate with their children in various forms of imaginative play such as story-telling and story-building. Watch your childís natural love of stories blossom along with his or her confidence and group skills.
If you have several children within the 2-5 year range, here is good news: We have discovered that 2 year-olds attending DramaVentures are inspired by the older members in the class, and 5 year-olds are natural leaders. While the course is geared for the 3 & 4 year-olds, your 2 & 5 year-olds may join in for 50% of the course fee:
