Play Writing, Mime, Creative Dramatics, Paint Bucket Theatre, Improv

Offering vibrant, hands-on learning experiences for kids of all ages.

In the workshops:
The more ways a child can experience a workshop, the more effective it is. My approach appeals to all of the senses, always offers hands on learning experiences, and often includes kids helping other kids.  We all understand lessons better after teaching them to others.

In the plays:
Any of the Fairy Tale Courtroom series are good basic introductions to American courtroom procedures... with some theatrical moments for comic effect.

Shakespearian Shorts introduces kids to Shakespeare in a fun, off-beat way. This trilogy was inspired by the Warner Brothers cartoons, especially the Bugs Bunny Operas that I watched growing up. Adults of a certain age, upon hearing Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries" for the first time, start singing in Elmer Fudd's voice, "Kill the Wabbit, Kill the Wabbit..."!

All three of the plays in Shakespearian Shorts follow the same plot lines as the originals that inspired them. What befalls those original, tragic, characters also happens in these comic spoofs... just a bit differently.
