Open to Grades K-6 • $28/student for the day • 8A-5P

Play Day is an all-day theater workshop scheduled on days that Columbia Public Schools are closed. 

We pick popular themes from books, movies, and television shows and create content in art, acting, and music for the day!

Kids can wear their public appropriate PJs and PLAY the day away with us!


Students are divided into groups by grade level (depending on enrollment) and will spend the day rotating between acting, crafts, dance, and other theatre-based activities. Throughout the day, we will play games, make craft projects, have a dance party, learn a dance routine, and maybe make a PJ Day Movie Trailer.
