The “School’s Out Workshops” on Friday, March 8th and each day the following week are for children ages 5-12 and run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The cost is $35 per child per day and the events take place at Springfield Little Theatre’s Education Building, 237 South Florence Avenue.

“It’s going to be a blast!” Zoe Zelonky, SLT’s youth program director told OI. “Every day we’ll teach them a song, teach them a script related to that day’s theme. It’s going to be a ton of fun, playing games and learning new things!”

Here are the list of events each day:

Friday, March 8 – Paw Patrol: Are you pups ready for action? Join us at Springfield Little Theatre for a day inspired by the popular series Paw Patrol! Discover your special skill, participate in a rescue mission, and, of course, show off what you’ve learned with an end-of-the-day performance!

Monday, March 11 – Mermaid Monday: Join us UNDER THE SEA at Springfield Little Theatre for a fun-filled day with Ariel and all of her water-friendly friends! Sing your heart out, dance with your (what do you call ‘em?) feet, and play mermaid-themed theatre games!

Tuesday, March 12 – Trolls Tuesday: Journey to the land of Trolls and Bergens for an adventure in happiness you’ll never forget! Get your CRAZY HAIR up, create a colorful craft, and sing and dance like you just can’t stop the feeling!
