Taught by professional theatre artists, the PEANUT GALLERY is devoted to musical theatre, personal expression, and self confidence. Children will learn the basics of singing and dancing, as well as what it means to participate and contribute to a group. Through story-telling, theatre games, art projects and performance, and with the guidance of the talented instructors, kids will not only have fun but will increase their own expressiveness and positive self image. During one spectacular week of Peanut Gallery, they will create and perform their own original show with songs from Broadway musicals on the stage of Gallery Players 99 seat theater!
