Kids Take Over Westport Country Playhouse

by Courtney Lauria, Community Engagement and Education Programs Coordinator

Since November, WCP has been hosting children of all ages for our Family Festivities Series. Westport Resident Mina Hartong, an Instructor at the Regional Center for the Arts,has been hosting a free pre-show activity before the 1pm and 4 pm performances. Our latest show Stella, Queen of the Snow inspired her to have the children to explore their environment and create a winter wonderland using their imagination, as shown here.

Up next is The Lightning Thief on February 8th, where our instructor will lead students to use creative play and adaptation. The participants will extend the book into their own version of a short play with storytelling and cooperation
