Paper Dreams

March 11-April 9, 2017
Written and directed by Claudia Moreso, Mons Dansa Dance Company Barcelona, Spain
with the US remount directed by Kathryn Chase Bryer

In a brand-new collaboration with Mons Dansa Dance Company Barcelona, Spain, we bring to life our first DANCE performance based show, perfect for ages 1-5 that explores the many facets of creativity. A fun, interactive production that tells the story of two delightful creatures who live inside a wastepaper basket. Can our greatest mistake actually turn out to be the next greatest innovative idea?

 

 

Mouse
¡Ratón en Movimiento!

A New Bilingual Version of Mouse on the Move!

June 24-July 30, 2017
Adapted and translated by Nick Vargas and Maribel Bustamante
Originally Developed and Directed by Janet Stanford and Kathryn Chase Bryer.

This production is now performed in both Spanish and English! Nellie and Amelia are two adventurous mice ready to explore the world beyond their little mouse-hole. They decide to go to La Luna, since it is cat-free and made entirely of delicious, mouth-watering queso (so they have heard). In this interactive play, the audience becomes part of the story through multi-sensory activities.

 

Classes

You And Me (Ages 12-36 months) Be the flower while your child becomes the butterfly! These caregiver and child classes use props and materials to stimulate the senses and promote your child's development of social and motor skills. 

My Friends And Me (Ages 3–5) Older children are ready to play on their own! Students play together, develop relationships, and enter the world of make believe. Through the use of music, movement and dramatic play, these classes ignite your child's imagination while flexing his or her problem-solving, language, and physical skills.
