Workshops and Residencies 

Workshops and residencies are structured to meet the needs of your group. They are practical, hands-on, inspiring, and fun! They may be scheduled as one day workshops or multi-day residencies.

For Students:
Standards of Learning concepts embedded in action-packed storytelling and theatre activities. Techniques that use storytelling as a catalyst for creative thinking and problem solving with an emphasis on the writing process.

Culminating activities may include:

  • Telling a story to a partner or whole class
  • An in-school storytelling festival
  • Traveling to other schools, libraries or senior centers to tell stories
  • An Open House performance for the class and/or the parents and teachers
