SPARX SHOWCASE PERFORMANCE

WHAT IS IT?

The program highlight!  
On the first day of any multi-day camp or course, children will dig deep into their imaginations and contribute script ideas! The instructor will then combine their selections (including everyone picking their own character!) into one amazing Sparx script that they will receive during the next class! Throughout the rest of their program, children will rehearse and receive direction from the instructors. Within the last half hour on the last day of class, YOU are invited to come and watch your superstar perform this amazing play!

BENEFITS:

It gives children something to continually work towards throughout the program and it allows them to feel proud of themselves! Additionally, this whole process helps to enhance creativity, language arts skills, public speaking, confidence, teamwork, emotional & character exploration and theater techniques!
