    In each Story Drama class, a new book is thoroughly explored. With eagerness and joy, students use their voices, bodies, and imaginations to activate the characters, setting, and conflict of the story. They experiment with various tactics to solve the problem, reach a resolution, and reflect on the adventure. Students experience different viewpoints as they play characters, and develop ownership and a sense of accomplishment as they save the world week after week.

    What do you do when you’re a mediocre entertainer? Practice, practice, practice!! Except that’s no good when the brains of the operation are plot-free and skills-starved. Enter Walt Disney… or rather, enter The Day Players into Walt Disney’s vault at Epcot Center. This band of ruffian thespians are confident they can revive Disney’s cryogenically preserved wit and become the happiest show on earth… until they realize that all Mr. Disney wants to do is live his newfound life. Disney will experience a whole new Disneyworld, everything shiny and new. But what about The Day Players? Will they find their denouement within the greatest musical ever produced or will they turn to a life of crime?

    Written by various local playwrights

    We have asked several local hot new playwrights — Kelleen Conway Blanchard, Jesse Glick, Benjamin Benne, Julia Nardin, Seayoung Yim — to write 10 minute plays specifically created for this age group and set in a kitchen (the set of our main stage production of Grand Concourse). Each role is a wonderfully rich lead and will challenge our students to grow and carry the entirety of a full storyline.
