For a recipe of fun add a dash of fantasy, a pinch of adventure, and sprinkle liberally with fairy dust for this magical journey into musical theatre for ages 5-7.  Footlights & Fairy Tales introduces the young actor to basic performing skills through movement, music, and imagination.  Children have fun acting out a simple play based on a childhood tale or short story.  Family and friends are invited to a performance on the last day of this two week acting adventure.

Fred and Ginger side by side
