2024 Winter Break Youth Experience

Monday Feb. 19 – Friday Feb. 23

Gloucester Stage Company is teaming up with devised theatre ensemble Liars & Believers to present a theatre filled activity week during February’s Winter Break.

Join Liars and Believers for an imaginative theatre adventure! Make puppets and bring them to life; create masks and become strange characters; find your personal clown; and improv games galore! We’ll have a great time developing our creativity, while learning theatre fundamentals like listening, communicating clearly, being open to others, and cooperation.
