THEATRE GAME ON!
A Creative Workshop for Youth Ages 8 to 12 with LaurA! Force Scruggs
“Anyone who wishes to can play in the theater.” – Viola Spolin.
LaurA! Force Scruggs is very excited to teach a theatre games workshop for children in Door County, ages 8 – 12! She will be leading games based in improvisation, movement, communication, comedy, collaboration, concentration and music. LaurA! likes to write about the importance of being yourself and will especially encourage the kids to be fully themselves at the workshop. During her Write On, Door County writing residency, LaurA! will be writing a play about Jane Addams’ work with children at the Hull House and the impact of childhood upon Addams’ career. One of the many programs for children at Addams’ Hull House was theatre. Viola Spolin’s legacy began at the Hull House, where she taught her innovative theatre games to many children and immigrants. Laura is looking forward to sharing theatre games and play in line with Spolin’s legacy with the children of Door County! ALL ARE WELCOME!
