Join us as we bring a play to life in three weeks. Jasper, the tailor’s apprentice, longs to be an inventor. His inventions are wonderful, and when he shows them to Princess Rilla, she invites him to the palace to meet the king. The old king mistakenly believes that Jasper’s large flyswatter is a giant slayer and sends the young apprentice to fight the giant terrorizing the countryside. With the aid of Princess Rilla, the bumbling knights and creatures of the Mysterious Wood, Jasper outwits the giant. In true fairy tale fashion, good triumphs over evil and everyone, well almost everyone, lives happily ever after.

Imagination Series

Our youngest campers are able to use their imaginations to bring fun characters to life through dramatic play, art, and music. These camps are a great introduction to the theater and the performing arts. Each camp has a new theme so your actor can take one or all three sessions and have a unique creative experience every time. Each session is ideal for both boys and girls.
