Drama Tots is from 4:15 to 5:15 p.m. and Musical Tots is from 5:15 to 5:45 p.m. Select one or enjoy both classes. Imaginations soar in this fun-filled program as youngsters use an assortment of costumes and simple props to 'bring to life' characters from classic and contemporary children's literature. The children are also encouraged to collaborate as they create and 'perform' their own stories. Group games, puppet play and a chance to 'tread the boards' for the very first time help youngsters develop their unique brand of "star" quality! Come for the drama, stay for the singing! In this fun introduction to musical theatre, youngsters will enjoy learning and singing popular children's musical theatre songs, featured in such classics as Peter Pan, The Sound of Music, Hans Christian Andersen, Annie, etc. Simple dance steps will be included to keep the children on their toes, all in a gentle, relaxed environment. INSTRUCTOR HEATHER SANDERSON studied classical theatre at RADA in London and prior to moving to Alexandria acted extensively in the San Francisco Bay Area. As "Miss Heather", she is known locally for instilling a love of theatre - in particular Shakespeare - into the hearts of children. Her youth Shakespeare troupes have performed in D.C. and in the U.K. and her privately coached monologue students have performed at the Shakespeare Theatre, the Ford's Theatre and numerous community and children's theatres in the area. Heather may be familiar to fans of British television programs through her Tea with Heather segments on Maryland Public Television's Afternoon Tea.
