Description: Each of us, from the day we're born, is accompanied by a special companion—the Yet. Can't tie your shoes? Yet! Can't ride a bike? Yet! Can't play the bassoon? Don't worry, Yet is there to help you out!
In this eight week session, students will explore their abilities in storytelling through an adaptation of the children’s book, The Magical Yet! Exercises and games will focus on the introduction of basic acting techniques, storytelling, puppetry, creating a character and fun team-building games. Share day on the final day of class will be for family and friends to witness a small staged production! All students receive a copy of the book, The Magical Yet, as a keepsake!
