Stepping Stones Students Participate in Papermill Playhouse Theater for Everyone Program

April 11th, 2018

Throughout the months of March and April, Stepping Stones students were engaged in the Papermill Playhouse’s Theater for Everyone program.  The six-week program teaches children of all abilities about the performing arts, self-expression, and arts appreciation.

The students’ efforts were on display on Tuesday, April 10th during a sharing session with family and friends.  Highlights included talking about the circus and becoming clowns, where the kids painted the staff and each other with face paint. Other sessions involved singing and acting out popular children’s books Stone Soup, Abiyoyo, and Are you My Mother?
