For the second year in a row, Walden Theatre/Blue Apple Players is proud to offer summer programs for preschool 3-5 year olds. In two camps that provide introductions to theatre following a process drama model, kids use creative expression and role-play to inhabit a story together with our Teaching Artists as guides.


Jack & the Beanstalk

Ages 4-5
Instructor: Mera Kathryn Corlett
Dates: July 6-10

Sharing for families: Fri July 10Kids help Jack save the day as they climb together into an enchanted world of exciting characters and strange happenings. This story is active, filled with problems to solve, and a surprising ending.

Little Red Hen

Ages 3-4
Instructor: Heather Burns
Dates: August 3-7

Sharing for families: Fri August 7Kids endeavor to make bread with the Little Red Hen by caring for and processing grain, asking for help from reluctant neighbors and winding up in a gentle confrontation on feelings, choices, and behaviors.
In both programs, children learn about acting in a non-competitive and nurturing space that’s focused on the experience of play, while also engaging in enrichment time where they select a variety of activities to deepen their connection to early literacy and school readiness skills.

Children should be potty trained to enroll.
