Inspired by the classic adventure novel and developed by 4th-8th grade actors, this original play will explore greed and what it takes to pursue your goals for the right reasons. As we build this show, students will also build their theatrical and leadership skills. Prepare for pirates, the open seas, and an adventure that will lead you around the world to seek your fortune.

This play for 4th-8th graders may be inspired by the horror classic by Mary Shelley, but fear not! We will be putting plenty of lightness and hope into our adaptation of this story as we explore what it means to take responsibility for our actions. By building an original performance as a group, each student will be able to step up their acting and leadership skills as they participate in a unique creative experience.

- SOLD OUT: SEE YOU AT THE SHOW! -
This play for 4th-8th graders is inspired by the classic novel by Bram Stoker. Prepare to bring some comedy and light-heartedness to the adaptation of this horror story as we develop our original adaptation. Students will not only dive into some of the source material, but will work together with their director to create this play and to develop their skills in improvisation, storytelling, and characterization.
