Treasure Time Drama Programs®

This dramatic experience is about having an opportunity to put on a play and be part of a team.

After children read a picture book, they perform a short musical skit. They become involved in the process of creating scenery, props, and designing costumes. The culmination of this eight week session is a performance for family and friends, which is also an occasion for family engagement. These programs also serve for cable TV shows.
