OBSERVATION
The last half of the last day of a 6-week open session SLT Education Class is set aside as an opportunity for students to informally share some of what they’ve learned during the six-week session.  Family and friends are invited to attend the demonstrations to enjoy the process that is theatre education.  On the final day of the session, students are asked to arrive at the regular start time and parents are invited in to watch the last twenty minutes.

SLT Classes will not meet when Springfield Public Schools are out of session (check out our School’s Out Play-in-a-Day offerings for children ages 5-12) or are cancelled by the district for inclement weather.
