The goal of the Workshops is for each participant to experience The Paper Bag Players approach to creating and performing theater --- essentially each participant becomes a Paper Bag Players.Each session will deal with the elements that make this company most famous: original and fanciful narrative plays, a dynamic interactive approach to the audience, the use of paper and cardboard to create compelling stage effects and costumes, creating comedy that children respond to, movement as an element of storytelling, and music as the connecting tissue that holds the shows together.
