    Build-a-World is our youth theater arts expo and a precursor to one of our youth shows. Kids will research the upcoming show and then with the guidance of our resident designer, the kids will design and build an interactive, immersive and sensory art exhibit of actual set pieces that will be used in the show once it hits the stage! This is unique in that the camp and the show set are created using recycled materials. We educate the kids on how to research, design and build as well as the importance of recycle and re-use. Create Art! Not waste!

Our instructors have extensive training and experience with improv and will ensure this class is not only informative, it is fun!
