wayne theatreThe Wayne Theatre is offering two preschool theatre workshops that will encourage kids to flex their creative muscles.

The “Creating Together” workshop, aimed at ages 2-3 and parents and caregivers, will help youngsters gained confidence as well as to develop social, motor, and imaginative problem-solving skills.

The “Little Stars” workshop is for 4- to 5-year-olds, with emphasis on creative play, movement, storytelling, and music, teaching students to create characters, explore new worlds, and to embrace their own little inner stars.

The workshops will be taught by Lesley Larsen, who teaches theatre and acting at James Madison University, has performed with the American Shakespeare Center, and taught at the Imagination Stage Theatre Camp at the Wayne Theatre in 2018.

“We’re excited to have Lesley back to lead our preschool theatre workshops,” said Tracy Straight, the executive director of the Wayne Theatre.
