YOUTH FALL CLASSES:

Treasure Trunk Theater at Live ArtsTREASURE TRUNK THEATER (AGES 4-6)

Does your child beg to wear dress-up clothes to kindergarten? Would your child rather play imaginative games than eat? Then Treasure Trunk Theatre is the perfect class for them.  Each day we’ll open up the treasure trunk to reveal new possibilities. Through guided use of simple costumes, props, and sets, children will use their imaginations to explore body awareness and vocal expressivity to create new characters and stories.
