From Midas to Minotaurs: A Drama Camp About Myths and Fables

Chelsey Kolenda
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(204)
In this camp, we will explore a variety of myths and fables from around the world through drama games and the performance of a fable-themed play.

Class experience

Campers will improve their confidence and experience the dramatic process from audition to performance. They will also explore myths and fables from around the world in an interactive way. 
I am an experienced youth theatre director and elementary school teacher, passionate about introducing children to the world of theatre. I hold an English and Theatre degree from the University of British Columbia, in which I was able to explore stories and storytelling traditions from diverse countries and cultures. I then took my Education degree with a specialization in Indigenous Education, which gave me tools and best practices in introducing not only Indigenous content but also content from other marginalized cultures to classes I lead. I bring this experience with me into my teaching practice in all capacities. 
Homework Offered
It would be helpful for campers to spend some time rehearsing their play outside of camp time.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
Campers will need to use prop and costume items from around their houses for their performance. They will also need paper and pencil crayons or markers to design backdrops and props. 
Some myths can include fantasy-based violence and frightening creatures. Child-friendly versions of each myth and fable will be used so content will remain age appropriate. At some times during this camp, I will use breakout rooms to allow campers  to collaborate together when coming up with a skit. I will use different devices to be physically present in each breakout room in case any concerns or questions arise, but will allow the campers to take the lead in terms of coming up with the skit and practicing with their group. I want their creativity to be able to shine! 
I will use be paying for performance rights for a fable-based play from either  The Drama Notebook or KidsinCo. I will decide on the play closer to the camp, when I see the number of registrants. Information for myth and fable stories will come from the following websites:
