Little Stars Kinderdrama
Little Stars Kinderdrama children stepped eagerly into the world of dance, music, and storytelling. In a class where they were free to move with energy and joy, they discovered the language of movement.
The Breast Education Breast Outreach Program was designed to advance good health practices and awareness in the battle against Breast Cancer. We were very grateful to the Susan B. Komen Foundation for a small grant that allowed us to create this program.
dramaworks provided a drama class for the youth in the Feather River College Upward Bound Program. In 2007 we did the play “A Dragon in the Mix” by Sue Ann Gunn. The youth were remarkable in how well they did. The final performance for the families was genuinely enjoyed. The program staff even commented that some of the youth who were having trouble elsewhere in the program seemed to excel in drama.
Plumas Arts in School Drama
dramaworks brought drama basics, magic tricks and general performance skills to the classrooms of any teacher who requested us via Plumas Arts. The collaboration with Plumas Arts is one we are proud of and hope to continue for many years to come.
Kids Clown Fun
We offered a one week learning experience for elementary aged youth. The youngsters worked with professional clown Linda Hewitt and learned clown history and about the different types of clown. Each child designed his or her own clown face and was able to walk in the Fair Parade in full clown regalia!
Drama Saturdays in the Park
During the summer, in Portola, the Even Start group sponsored a fun day of activities for children in the Park in Portola, California. Learning and language were key emphases.
SMILE CENTRAL was a magical event put on by dramaworks at the request of Plumas Unified School District. This was a children’s fair just for families with children with special needs. We had music, dress up, games, food, a special tactile area and more. Everyone who attended participated in a survey regarding the needs of such families. It was really fun and rewarding!
Female survivors of violence told their stories. These were transcribed and then other women acted them onstage in a production that was titled, "A Cry For Hope". This was performed in Quincy and in Truckee.
