StoryBook is bringing our PD Day programming back, with a twist.  This year our PD Programming will embark on a PLAY IN A DAY style program that will allow students to create their own play all within a safe theatre space. Students, along with their instructor, will write, produce, cast and rehearse a show all their own culminating in a final presentation at the end of the day.

The show will use contributions made by each and every student giving them ownership over the final product. 

This program is designed so that students can participate in just one PD Day Camp, or in multiple days and learn new things each time they attend. 

HOW DOES THIS WORK?

Classes will take place in person

FINAL PRESENTATION
Parents are invited to join us for the last 20min of class to watch the final creation.
