Storytelling/Storyacting Camp with Story Circle
February 15 – 19, 2010
1:30pm – 4:30pm
How many ways can YOU tell a story? Create one from a prop? Act out a
story without any words? Tell a story back in your own style to a
partner who has told one to you? Maybe cast the characters of your
story and direct it as a play!
Bring a memory from your life or a favorite folktale or fable. We'll
use our imaginations to act out tales and have fun!
