Children’s Workshops



Kindergarten Through Eighth Grade Classes

A Fun Experience For All!  

Young performers will learn basic onstage and acting techniques while they develop their imagination and creativity.  All children will have a blast as they explore acting through a series of theater and improvisational games.  This ensemble building class will foster each student’s self esteem and help him/her become an independent thinker both on and off the stage.

Program instructor Anne Marie Irey has been involved in theater for over twenty years.  She minored in Theatre at St. Mary’s College and earned her Master’s in Education degree at DePaul University.  Anne Marie is an alumna of The Second City, and spent several years performing improv in Chicago.  Recently, she taught fourth grade at Sacred Heart, where she founded an after school drama program.
