Preschool Players 

An Afternoon Theater Group

Mondays & Tuesdays 

  

Led by Mrs. Jenny Carbone of the Paper Mill Playhouse (and Junior Kindergarten teacher at Gingham), this dynamic program will serve as an introduction to all things theater! Children attending a morning class at Gingham Giraffe will bring a  lunch from home and stay until 2:30 PM Mondays (4's, 5's, Kindergarten) or Tuesdays (3's) each week. We will start the school year with mini themes, allowing children new to the program to try it out before we begin rehearsals in November for our winter performance. 


Friends who are not currently enrolled at The Gingham Giraffe may also join!

Drop off 12:30, pick up at 2:30. 


We are thrilled to announce that our winter production this year will be...

The Nutcracker 

GG's Preschool Players will provide:


- New, creative lessons in each class that are both fun and developmentally appropriate centered around all aspects of theater! We will use physical storytelling, dance and song to learn about song, voice range, and how our body moves for dance. Scenery, props and costumes too!


- A supportive learning environment that will develop confidence, speaking skills, imagination, gross motor skills, and teamwork. Children are encouraged to work as an ensemble to achieve goals and cooperate with peers to bring their performance to life!


- An introduction to theater terms and vocabulary. Children will improve literacy and communication, listening skills, self discipline and concentration. As the development of the imagination increases, so does creative thinking. 


- A performance for parents and caregivers to see your child's talent and hard work!
