Funky Fairytales
A fairy tale theater camp with a twist for 7-11 year olds, taught by Jessica Jelliffe & Lisa Clair of Banana Bag & Bodice. Reimagine your favorite fairy tales with a a special funky twist! What is the Big Bad Wolf's side of the story? What if Goldilocks never met the three bears? What happens after "Happily Ever After"? Using original fairy tales and their "funky" counterparts as a jumping off point, students will engage in a week of theater games, creative problem solving, and performance. Students will continue to develop their self-confidence and acting skills while creating characters, constructing scenes, practicing beginning musical theater skills and creating an original short "Funky Fairy Tale Play" for our end-of-week sharing for friends and family.
