WHEN: Monday, July 6 through Friday, July 10, 12:30 to 3:30 p.m.
WHAT: Tifni Twitchell directs magical adventure stories played out with costumes, props, fabrics and puppets…lots of musical gibberish and madcap dance, encouraging individual expression in a nurturing environment.

WHEN: Monday, July 13 through Friday, July 17, 12:30 to 3:30 p.m.

WHEN: Monday, July 20 through Friday, July 24,
12:30 pm to 3:30 pm
