“It is said that imagination is like an open window for children to experience the outside world for themselves. It should be encouraged by both parents and educators through dramatic play. After all, children learn not only from what they are, but also from what they want to be.”
Ruby Lim-Yang
Artistic Director

Hungry Hungry

Inspired by
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
By Eric Carle

A hungry baby caterpillar hatches from an egg and slowly chomps his way through a variety of food on each day of the week. After getting a terrible stomachache, he learns his lesson and finally pupates and emerges as a beautiful butterfly.

Our specially curated 90-minute workshop, inspired by this beautiful story, will offer many opportunities for your students to work together and express themselves creatively and imaginatively. It will begin with fun and educational activities that will prepare and set your students for Drama.

After a reading and class discussion of the book, the children will learn how to use their bodies to move creatively, explore the different characters through voice and role play and finally, with the assistance of our teacher-in-role, retell the story in an impromptu session with simple props and costumes.

Let Me Tell the Story!

Inspired by Interrupting Chicken
By David Ezra Stein

A little red chicken promises to be good during storytelling time but fails miserably. Interrupting her father during crucial moments of fairy tales such as Hansel and Gretel and Little Red Riding Hood, the both of them finally fall asleep in each other’s arms.

In this very unique and interactive workshop for preschoolers, your students will enjoy role playing both parent and child discovering the many ways of telling a story and interrupting it. Beginning with warm-up exercises to gear your students up for 90 minutes of Drama, this workshop will introduce the concept of playing a role through characterisation, using the body for creative movement and developing the voice for language.

After reading and discussing the story as a class, the children will put on simple costumes and work in groups together with the Drama teacher-in-role and present their version of it in a mini performative showcase.
