During this interactive workshop, Orlando Shakes’ Teaching Artists help your students bring a book to life, be it Magic Tree House, Miss Nelson Is Missing, Interstellar Cinderella, or any favorite children’s story. Students are introduced to the theater artist roles of director, stage manager, and actor. Through interactive games and theater exercises, students explore the story’s settings, characters, costumes, and props by creating a “snapshot” of story elements using their own bodies as statues. Students are then challenged to create their own “spin-off” story that take the characters from the story to new places.
