Pre-Production is an exciting shortened version of our Production Class! Designed to prepare Pre-K through 2nd graders for the responsibilities of a bigger production, this class will perform a highly energetic and fun-filled full KIDS production of Magic Tree House: Dinosaurs before Dark. The kids will learn choreography, music, how to memorize lines and be part of a team.  Building the mind of an actor takes time and dedication and this class will fully prepare them to work with the “big kids” in Production Class!  This is a newly designed class offering and we are excited to bring it to the Ruby!
