Shabonee Players

Shabonee Players is a dramatic arts club available to  3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. Members of this club will play improv games and rehearse and perform various plays.

Dramatic arts are not only a  fun way to collaborate with peers, they help students develop self-confidence, social skills, and empathy as they take on dramatic roles.  This club is meant to be a safe place for students to explore the dramatic arts- no background experience required! Our final productions will be small in scale, and props and costumes will consist of found objects or student created items.  At the end of the session, the Shabonee Players will put on a small performance during the club’s final meeting, after school on a Tuesday. This club is meant to offer initial exposure to this creative art form!

Grade levels: 3, 4, 5

Meeting dates/times: Tuesday from 3:15 p.m. to 4:05 p.m.
