Kids will get a chance to learn all about the theater in a vacation camp for grades 2 through 5, from April 13 through April 16, at the Darien Arts Center.

At "Stretch Your Imagination," children will create stories and characters through theater games that involve movement, improvisation and characterization. They'll also learn about stage makeup application and how to design and make a costume from DAC instructor Nancy Kelly and Kids' Theatre Director Maggie Pangrazio. Participants will use fabric, paper, beads and buttons to bring characters to life and create props. The camp will take place from 9:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Campers should bring lunch. A snack will be provided.
