Magic Treasure Chest, taught by Curio Education Director Meg Trelease, is a journey into the special magic of objects in the theatre. Each week, we will open our treasure chest to discover brand new items, and we will explore the story these items inspire. Students will learn how to follow their imaginations and creative impulses, work together to solve problems, and develop theatrical storytelling techniques. For our final showcase, we will invite the audience to participate with us to create an impromptu play with our magic treasure chest Magic Treasure Chest will be best enjoyed by students aged 6-8 years old.
Far Fetched Fables, taught by Curio Company member Steve Carpenter, is a rock and roll remix of familiar fairy tales and fables. What if Little Red Riding Hood had her own Netflix show or the Three Little Pigs were ninjas? Students will learn the high wire act of creating a wholly unique page-to-stage adaptation using the very same ensemble techniques we use in our professional company.
Far Fetched Fables will be best enjoyed by students aged 9-12 years old.
