Olympic Theatre Arts is accepting registrations for its Children’s Theatre spring workshop called “Puppet Building” for children ages 8-18. The one-week workshop will be offered from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Friday, April 3-7. The children will learn to build and operate stage puppets and how they can be used in live theater to create imaginative characters on stage.
This workshop is the beginning segment in a series of classes and workshops that are building toward a full scale, original premiere production this fall using puppets. The OTA Children’s Theatre program is now in its third year and offers workshops such as this one during each of the breaks in the school year as well as 10-week after-school class sessions between breaks.
Workshop and class sessions are held at the OTA Center, 414 N. Sequim Ave. The one-week workshop tuition is $175, ($150 for OTA members) and includes lunch. OTA offers limited tuition assistance. Registration forms are available online at olympictheatrearts.org or by visiting the OTA business office from 1-5 p.m. Monday-Friday or calling 683-7326.
