For Ages 2-5 and their caregivers
Tuesdays October 10 - November 14

Instructor: Emily Ennis

In this fun six week class caregivers and their toddlers or preschoolers will play pretend, explore different characters and have a lot of fun. Following a different theme each week we will start each class with vocal and physical warm ups much like actors do before a performance. We will have fun acting out a story and playing games based around pretend play. We will build props with arts and crafts. We will play games that further communication that caregivers can continue at home. Through these activities our littles will explore the intentions and emotion of the characters giving them insight at their level to how others feel.
Come play pretend with us!

Winner of 12 Tony awards, including Best Musical, The Producers is one of Mel Brooks' funniest shows!

The Producers is the story of a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his accountant who concoct a flop as the perfect financial swindle. The plan, however, gets entirely out of hand when their magnum opus becomes a hit!

Be advised; This production includes adult themes and language.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem is a community driven arts organization. As such, we see the true value and the critical role that diversity serves in helping our theatre and community thrive. Going forward, we are determined to foster an environment that respects and promotes the value of diversity. The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem believes in the transformative power of the arts to enrich lives and revitalize communities. We are committed to sustaining a diverse, inclusive, and equitable space where everyone who participates in our programming — patrons, artists, employees, volunteers, and students — feels valued and respected regardless of gender, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, education, or ability.

While this is not an end-all statement and will constantly evolve as we and our organization (continues to) learn and grow, this is a starting point for forming actions that will encourage equity and make an impact.

Commitment (some in place some and some in the process):

  • Evaluating all scripts with considerations towards inclusion and diversity within the season.

  • Increasing camp accessibility by providing scholarships to those in need of financial assistance.

  • Creating an equitable internship that includes compensation.

  • Seeking the recruitment, retention, and support of Black and Indigenous artists and teachers of Color.

  • Seeking opportunities to provide resources for students and their families to attend shows.

  • Working with individual directors to strive for diverse casts and design teams.

  • Ensuring that all directors have casting and dramaturgical resources available to them to protect and support the cultural specificity required of the work.
