Get ready to move, act, dance, sing, write, and perform! Hamden Hall Theater teacher Lisa Daly offers this exciting specialty week for students who want a fun and focused week immersed in the performing arts. Join us for an accessible, imaginative week filled with games, storytelling, and purposeful play. The week will focus on the elements that make up a play- storytelling, character development, sets, costumes, movement, and lots of creativity! We will work together in an ensemble-based process to write and create an original work. Our week will culminate in a performance for our families and friends.
