Mindfulness Mondays will include both stress-reducing exercises for emotional intelligence, self-regulation, and empathy developed through the Creative Play program and thought prompts and exercises that reflect awareness, equity, and social justice.
Write On! Wednesdays
Write On! Wednesdays asks parents to send their children’s original plays and stories to the Theatre. The following Wednesday, one script will be chosen and performed by members of the CTC’s resident Acting Company and Performing Apprentices and released via video on Facebook!
How does this work? Send us a private message to our Facebook page with your child’s script/story by Saturday night. Then, we will choose one to debut the following Wednesday!
