Whidbey Island Center for the Arts in Langley welcomes students, ages 5 to 8, for the WICA Conservatory Spring Break Fairy Tale Theatre Camp from Monday, April 7 to Friday, April 11. Fairytale Theatre Camp will be led by local theatre educator Connie Sponheim.
Students will explore the magic of the classic fairy tale through the nurturing experience of theatre games, pantomime and improvisation. Creating their own original tales, the kids will experience the magic of theater and how it can enlighten, embolden and encourage them as they perform their own creation for an audience. They will explore every kind of fairy tale, from “fractured” to “enchanted,” and must be prepared to laugh and have loads of fun telling stories with movement, voice and their active imaginations.
The class will culminate in a presentation for parents and families at WICA. Each student will also receive a free ticket to the matinee performance and a backstage tour of Whidbey Island Dance Theatre’s production of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale, “The Snow Queen.”
Instructor Sponheim is a local theatre educator with an extensive background in performance, directing, dialect work and academic teaching. Sponheim brings more than 30 years of experience as a teacher, director and actor to her workshops, along with her high energy and enthusiasm.
WICA Conservatory’s Spring Break Fairytale Camp runs from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, April 7 to 11.
