It’s time to continue our CAST journey. While performance restrictions apply, we can still have great fun learning about and creating new theatre experiences for your children in a very safe environment.
Commedia Dell’Arte  was an Italian form of comedy that was especially popular in the 16th to 18th centuries. Commedia troupes would travel from town to town performing in the open air. It was an ensemble genre, and built its comedy around physical humor and the improvisational skills of its actors.

A fun overview of the History of Commedia Dell’Arte.  Participants will be taught about the specific traits of popular commedia characters. From there they will develop their own version of one of the traditional commedia characters. MASKS are a key component! Each child will design and make a character mask.
