If trick-or-treating isn’t your thing, join us a screening of Tim Burton’s 1993 classic animated film.

Bored with the same old scare-and-scream routine, Jack Skellington – the Pumpkin King – longs to spread the joy of Christmas. But his merry mission puts Santa in jeopardy and creates a nightmare for good little boys and girls everywhere.

Rated PG, the movie is recommended for ages 8 and up.

In the Midnight Library, a little librarian helps all the animals find the perfect book.

Luckily, the little librarian knows just how to turn a little trouble into a lot of fun.

This workshop will focus on many aspects of theater including improv, movement, C.R.O.W. (Character Relationship Objective Where), story telling, literature, basic theater terms, team building, voice, imagination and most important, having fun!

This workshop will not be performance focused. There is no “final performance” at the end of the four week session, so if you can’t make every session don’t worry! Youth can earn DIY badges after the workshop.
