A Dragon on the Hill
Carousel Players presents an interactive drama workshop play where you get to be part of the performance! The session will begin with some warm up activities and games, so that everyone can be ready to participate in the story telling. Facilitated by two professional actors, the audience will help to tell the story of A Dragon on the Hill by taking on roles, singing, dancing and helping to animate our beautiful Dragon puppet. The activity will end with a time for participants to ask questions and offer ideas about what might happen next for the dragon. Be prepared to move around, use your voice and your body, and of course your imagination!
This participatory performance/drama workshop will be fun for kids aged 5 and up, and their caregivers.
