Trickster Tales 

In this Zoom workshop, children ages 5-13 will become Play Makers, collaborating to create a culminating performance in mid-December. The focus will be on the process of theatre creation rather than a focus on performance, although the children will create performances to share. Participants will be led through improvisation and drama games to retell traditional folk tales and poems through their own artistic voice. They will also help to create their own costumes, props, and backdrops! 

With Your Help,
The Show Will Go On 

Our Pied Piper kids were just two weeks away from opening night of our spring musical when we had to cancel all performances due to the outbreak of COVID-19.  The cancellation meant a major loss of revenue for PPCT, not to mention the disappointment after all the time, hard work, and dedication the kids had put in. We are still offering as much as we can in the current circumstances to keep the spirits of our PPCT community, and Northern Manhattan community in general, lifted and socially connected (even while we physically distance). Click below to learn more about what we're doing and how you can help.

I think it's incredible that I have the luck of living in a neighborhood where they have a theatre and I can perform in it.

Leo, age 10

I've leaned a lot, not just as a performer but as a person. I don't think I'd be the person I am today without it.

Tamara, age 15

One word that makes me think of Pied Piper is... happiness.
