Creative Drama with Crafts & Puppets


This workshop was  made possible with the support of YAC.

Rebecca Jernigan and her assistants, Esmerelda and Tobey, worked with children ages 6 - 9 on creative expression through voice, body and imagination.  Students participated in theatre games to develop concentration and team work. They also developed stories and created puppets which they used to perform skits. On closing day, a demonstration of the games and skits proved to be delightful.


Rebecca is a professional actress and storyteller on the Mississippi Arts Commission roster, the Mississippi Humanities Council roster and the Southern Arts roster.  She holds membership in Actors Equity and the Screen Actors Guild and a masters degree in arts
