Theatre

In our Theatre program we open up the world of storytelling using imaginative play, song and dance. Children gain confidence and a understanding of live theatre.

  • Action stories – telling stories as the children act out the story
  • Creating worlds and spaces with simple props and costumes
  • Guess Who I am – act out an animal, insect, person
  • Pretend/Social play – dramatic play without instruction
  • Mirror – copy teacher’s or another student’s movement
  • Not Anymore – taking a simple prop and creating new uses for it
  • Museum – moving when the “guard” isn’t looking, becoming a statue when the “guard” is looking
  • Quiet Story – acting out an activity without talking while others guess
