Drama for kids
The spring session of Honolulu Theatre for Youth's children's drama program begins Saturday.
The seven-week program, "Imagine," is for students in kindergarten through sixth grade and takes place on Saturday afternoons through May 20.
It will be held at two locations on opposite sides of the island: Waikele Community Park and Kailua District Park.
Sessions are divided by grade level: kindergarten and first grade, 1:35 to 2:35 p.m.; second and third grade, 2:45 to 3:45 p.m.; fourth to sixth grade, 3:55 to 4:55 p.m.
Students will explore story-building, creative movement and improvisation, building to a presentation on the final day.
The theme for grades kindergarten to three is "Dramasaurus"; for the older grades, "Play On!"
