Theater vets join Little Boy in workshops

NOW on its 12th year, Little Boy Productions will once again hold theater workshops for children and teenagers this summer at the Robinsons Galleria Cebu starting April 26.

What makes these workshops different? They will be led by Filipino-American theater director Andrei Pamintuan (Manila Fringe Festival, “Sa Wakas–the Sugarfree musical,” New York Musical Theater Festival, Two River Theater in Red Bank, NJ) and actress Jill Pena (“Annie” and “The Sound of Music” at Resorts World Manila, “Kinky Boots” and “Carrie” with Atlantis Productions, “Mulan” with Repertory Philippines Children’s Theater).

They bring with them their years of experience working in professional theaters. There is no need to fly to Manila or New York to experience a similar theater workshop. Little Boy will bring the teachers to Cebu.

More importantly, the workshops use theater games to teach creativity, awareness, observation, focus and most importantly, build self-confidence. The games also help with coordination skills, quick-thinking, self-reliance and the importance of teamwork.

Theater is a unique, immersive learning experience with great benefits to a child’s development, with lessons they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. (PR)
