Inspired by the classics of Puss in Boots; How the Grinch Stole Christmas; and Mother Goose; as well as Eric Carle’s Little Cloud and Dream Snow, these workshops will ignite the child’s imagination, while introducing a generous amount of imagination, fun and laughter on the learning adventure.

There will also be a performance at the end of the workshops for 3 to 12 year olds as wonderful finale to their learning journey. Conducted by experienced Drama Educators in a convivial and conducive environment, the workshops focus on helping the child discover simple concepts, build confidence and acquire the basic techniques of drama.

Elaborates Ruby Lim-Yang, Artistic Director of ACT 3 Drama Academy: “Imagination is ever so precious. To be able to wonder about this and that and to let that imagination wander, that is what creativity is about – giving birth to new ideas, and fresh thinking. Everything we want to have in our children.”

To register for all workshops, parents are invited to book online at www.act3international.com.sg, call ACT 3 Drama Academy at (65) 6735 9986, email at act3int@act3international.com.sg or head to the premises located at ONE-TWO-SIX Cairnhill Arts Centre, 126 Cairnhill Road.
