Our youngest campers, ages 4-6, enjoy the benefits of being part of the bigger program, while still having their own space and their own program — designed especially for them. Little Theatre joins the rest of the students to start and end each day. In between, they enjoy their own classes in acting, dance and singing. The days in Little Theatre are spent exploring their imaginations, performing for their peers, and using their bodies and voices to give expression to the unique creative spark within each of them.
Puppets, masks, instruments, costumes, props and music are ever present throughout the day, and craft projects are used to further explore the artistic process. Creative play time is included daily, as are snack and juice, which PGT provides. Little Theatre students get the chance to study with all of the PGT teaching artists throughout the week, while they also benefit from the consistency of one teaching artist who guides them through each day, from “Morning Hello” through all classes and activities, to lunchtime and dismissal.
Little Theatre takes place in two sessions. Different material is covered in each session and we look forward to having many of the same students from session 1 return for session 2. Students registering for both sessions receive the six week registration discount.
Students who register for session 1 may also extend their session by one or two additional weeks. Tuition will be prorated on a weekly basis.
Each session ends with an informal presentation of the students’ work for family, friends and all of the PGT Summer students.
