post-show workshops

JTC offers post-show interactive theatre workshops where children get to re-tell the story, act out the characters as well as learn some of the songs from the show. Post-show workshops play a crucial role in developing a deeper understanding of the African Folktale and the lesson being communicated. Interactive workshops allow learners to express their experiences of the shows and involves the children in building connections to heritage, culture, and the environment.

The post show workshops are an effective way for children to be introduced to performing arts skills within the context of play. The themes and content of the productions are expanded on and the learning is deepened through the vocal and physical expression of the children. Teachers are also welcomed to participate in or watch the workshop and learn a trick or two that they may use in the class room going forward.
