ABOUT OUR WORKSHOPS

We believe that every young person is an artist. Our Fall Theatre Workshops aim to encourage and cultivate the artistry, imagination, and creativity of New Orleans’ young artists. We will be offering workshops for youth aged 4-7 and 8-12.

These workshops have been tailored to be creative, exploratory, and process-based. Both workshops culminate in a performance for families, friends, and loved ones, but we want to make sure that we focus on the progress and experience of each child. As always, we accept all performers without an audition and each child will perform at the end of the workshop. These workshops are about discovering how to use our bodies, voices, and imaginations to create theatre and how to work together. And of course, these workshops are all about fun!
