A Wild Thing from Where the Wild Things Are

In its third year of partnership at PS 452, Vital Theatre worked with the Kindergarten. Over 12 weeks, teaching artist Elise Reynard worked with the kindergarten classes to learn foundational theatre skills and create original plays based on their favorite storybooks. Students learned to work as an ensemble and make connections to curriculum through creative movement and spoken word. The residency culminated with in-class presentations for parents, friends and invited guests.
