Afterschool Theater Workshops

Pocket Full of Tales Theatre Company presents brand-new, scripted original musicals as the leaping-off point for our Afterschool Theater Workshops. Your child will have adventures in acting, dancing, singing, and teamwork, and will work with professional actors, musicians, and theater educators in a creative, supportive environment to stage a final show on the last day of class. Classes are held weekdays after school.
