With arts education on the decline in schools, more and more public libraries are stepping up with kids events to ensure that young people get the opportunity to develop self-expression, empathy, creative thinking, and communication through library programming.
Storytown's IMPROVISED MUSICAL and IMPROV WORKSHOPS are a perfect fit for library events, delivering a memorable arts experience with lasting impact.
Suitable for Pre-K through 5th grade, our fully improvised one-hour musical offers multiple opportunities for participation from children and their families, and teaches cooperation, communication, creativity, problem-solving, and collaboration while exciting, entertaining, and engaging the imagination.
Led by our teaching artists, Storytown's one-hour improvisation workshop uses exciting and easy to understand games to introduce the basic fundamentals of improvisation, including positivity, listening skills, storytelling, and cooperation. The workshop culminates in a 15-minute "performance" utilizing the participants' newfound skills.
