The goal of Treasure Time is to instill within children a lifelong love of reading and the arts. When children engage in music, acting, creative movement and hands on art projects, learning becomes fun. Treasure Time drama and music programs inspire creativity and offer a chance for self expression.
Mrs. Treasure comes in costume and reads a selected picture book. She sings songs with a guitar and encourages audience participation in games and hands-on art projects. Usually these fun and entertaining programs conclude with dancing.
This dramatic experience is about having an opportunity to put on a play from beginning to end. Children choose a picture book and help to write a musical play. They are involved in the process of creating scenery and props and designing costumes. The culmination of this 8 week session is a performance for family and friends, and sometimes a cable TV show.
