Our funds provided children an opportunity to participate in the Winneshiek Playhouse Children’s Theater Tech Workshop. Winneshiek collaborated with the Freeport Art Museum on the artistic set design/construction and gave the children a more in-depth opportunity to expand their knowledge base, skill levels, and creativity for this highly sought after element in theater.
Winneshiek’s Children’s Theater program is the only one of its kind in the area. The Theater offers a unique opportunity, for two weeks in the summer, for children ages 9-13, to learn about all aspects of theater, which culminates at the end of the two weeks in two full production plays put on by the children, with adult supervision. This is a completely hands-on workshop.
