Little Players

Little Players' mission is to foster an appreciation of community theater and encourage self-development through the dramatic arts as students learn the skills and technical aspects of theater. Little Players performs one full-length production each summer and offers educational workshops throughout the year. (Financial assistance is available for Little Players' workshops upon request.)

Based on the book “The Day the Crayons Quit” by Drew Daywalt, camp involves five days of games and activities based on theater skills. Participants will tie-die shirts, build a giant crayon box, write their own letters/scripts, create a mural based on their letters/scripts and present their letters to an audience. There will be a performance on the final day - Friday, July 19 at 5:00 pm.
