If this package is purchased (full day option), students will bring a lunch each day and have a supervised lunch break from 12-12:30 p.m. Students will enjoy and experience a variety of exciting topics taught by talented and qualified instructors. Past specialty classes have included Puppetry, Improv, and Script Writing.
