virginia theater: AgeS 6-8
What I'm learning
- Physical Development:
When I dance, move and perform on stage, I am helping my muscle growth and movement skills.
- Literacy and Language:
I am practicing my reading skills by writing and reading scripts in a comfortable and fun atmosphere.
I am introduced to new worlds that deal with the technical aspects of theater (lights, sound effects, set design, etc.).
- Social Learning:
I am imagining what life is like for the characters I am portraying on stage.
- Reasoning and Problem Solving:
I am contributing my ideas for lighting, sound, costumes, and movement with others on stage with me.
Play & Learn Together:
- Encourage your child to create their very own play and perform it.
- Children can assign roles to various friends and family members to help with their production.
- Help your child sketch and draw their own characters or set design using the paper and pencils in the Art Smart exhibit area.
