Open to Grades K-7 • $35/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.


  • Pre-registration is required. We cannot guarantee availability with registration less than 36 hours prior to the Play Day.  

  • Students need to wear shoes that will stay on their feet.

  • Please bring a sack lunch that does not require heating or cooling. Please do not send soda, milk, or other drinks that will stain clothing or carpeting.

  • Please bring a morning and afternoon snack.

  • DO NOT pack any nut or peanut products.

  • If your child will arrive late or leave early, please let the staff know ahead of time.

  • Classes are high energy, and the day is long. Students should get a full night's rest before attending.


If your child requires para assistance or special assistance at school *including accommodations regarding curriculum and/or behavior*, please disclose this information to the TRYPS staff as you enroll. We will make efforts to accommodate if possible for the safety of your child and the TRYPS staff and student community.
