Advanced PlayLab: A Series Of Unfortunate Events

PlayLabs are artistic experiments working with original or adapted stories. Together we re-imagine literature. Students explore story lines, characters, dialogue, and character movements to foster a deeper understanding of each theatrical element and the role it plays in a performance. Students are allowed the freedom of artistic expression and play an active role in the creative process. PlayLabs are enhanced by sets, lights, costumes and all the theatre magic we can create.

An Advanced PlayLab contains complex material or an intensified rehearsal process or shorter rehearsal period  – students should be prepared to work all day and still work on the project at home each night.

A Series of Unfortunate Events

Based on the series by Lemony Snicket, the unfortunate story of the Baudelaire children, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny, who suddenly find themselves orphaned after their parents perish in a terrible fire. As the story progresses, the Baudelaires gradually discover a deep background of secrets and conspiracies involving a secret society .
