Miss Megan's theatre workshops are adaptable to her students' needs. Most programs are 12-week workshops where the kids help develop a story to be made into a script, and then audition, rehearse and perform their play. They are taken through all the steps of professional play production with emphasis placed on their own abilities and interests.
Miss Megan has enjoyed having beginning students, more experienced students, and every type of student in between. The inclusive atmosphere she creates makes it possible for any child with an interest in the arts to participate, including students who are shy, on the autism spectrum, have physical, mental or learning disabilities, and reading or speech difficulty.
Below are some of our past original productions.

Their plans are further complicated when their science professor reveals herself with a plan to destroy all the candy in the world.
