About Filament's Education Programs:

Filament’s education programs focus on amplifying the creativity of the young participants. With Filament there are no scripts and no assigned roles–each participant creates their own dream role. Through drama and creative play, Filament’s experienced teaching artists support everyone in creating their own dialogue, characters, stories, costumes, and sometimes their own play.

“My three children are having a blast. I’m so glad we discovered your theater company.” 
Julie H.

About Escape from Reality:

What if you could escape the real world for an hour and experience a different reality? Join Filament for a look at the ingredients that make our favorite games so special. Create fantasy worlds, invent characters, develop storylines, and write rules as you design an imaginary board game or video game. Then, bring your game to life for a special performance–everyone will be invited to play along!

About Tales From the Forest:

Using classic fairy tales as inspiration, we will work together to create NEW tales filled with villains, members of royalty, and plenty of sidekick woodland creatures! This class will encourage students to use their bodies, voices, and imaginations to collaborate on wacky original stories that celebrate nature!
