Our 2020/21 Season

will include a project like nothing Pied Piper has ever done before... an original four-part web series shot entirely on location in the forests of northern Manhattan, Robin Hood. This re-telling of the ancient legend includes Robin, Marian, Will Scarlett, Friar Tuck, and the merry band as you’ve never seen them before. Can this clever band of thieves with hearts of gold foil the Sheriff of Nottingham and his men in their evil plans and bring peace and prosperity to Sherwood? Tune in to find out!

Trickster Tales

In this Zoom Play Making workshop for children ages 5-13 we will explore the archetype of the Trickster in folk tales and poems from around the world, and the expression of the trickster in the guise of nature and animals. Children will become Play Makers, collaborating to create a culminating performance in mid-December. The focus of this workshop will be 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 and an inquiry process to retell these traditional stories through their own artistic voice. They will also participate in the process to create their own costumes, props, and backdrops to use.

The workshop will be conducted over Zoom beginning with ensemble building and drama games in mid-October and will culminate in an online performance. The goal of this experience is to foster a collaborative, child led, creative environment by focusing on the process of theatre and thus developing confidence, empathy, and community building skills.
