Spark your kid's imagination with the Improv Story Show!
This unique event is half workshop, half performance, and ALL online.
Using a ZOOM virtual meeting, we’ll start with some improv games to get their creativity flowing, then Betsaida & Jessilee will guide kids through creating a never before told story on the spot from beginning to end. Kids will use their imagination, work collaboratively, listen to each others ideas, be encouraged to be silly, have fun, and even make some new friends.
This event is designed for children ages 4-9.
Cost is $10 for the session.
One face per screen allows for maximum participation.
