Castlemoon Theatre will be part of the Artist in the Schools for the upcoming school year. In 2020, there will be a new program to work with groups of schools over the course of a year, or up to three years. We can learn puppet skills and even put on a show!
The students will explore popular children’s stories with puppets on their arms (or fingers or feet). They will design and create puppets and learn how to use them! Each day focuses on a specific skill through active exercises. The students will then use their new found skills in a story using their creations as characters.
The week has links to various subjects including dance (movement in various ways), music (voice, pitch and tempo), science (animals and their habitat), and English Language Arts (books and comprehension).
