Experience books in a whole new way! Classic stories come alive for preschoolers at Virginia Rep’s Children’s Theatre at Willow Lawn. Each Monday during the 6 week session we will take a multi-sensory journey through a favorite work of children’s literature using age appropriate process-based creative drama. This one hour program is designed for children ages 3 ½ – 5 years old as an ideal introduction to the magical world of theatre.
Through Story Drama, children develop early literacy skills, symbolic and critical thinking, empathy, impulse control, and confidence. Popular book titles in the past have included:
Lyle, Lyle Crocodile by Bernard Waber
Go, Dog, Go! by P.D. Eastman
The Mitten by Jan Brett
Corduroy by Don Freeman
Click, Clack, Moon: Cows that Type by Doreen Cronin
