After 25 years of teaching acting in Kansas City, we are experts at making sure your kids grow in confidence on and off the stage.
My time at Theatre of the Imagination made me feel unstoppable! It gave me the confidence away from school that I needed to spread my funny wings and fly.
From making a brand new movie every day to learning new scripts every week to singing and dancing, Theatre of the Imagination let me stretch my creative muscles in ways I would never have expected from any other drama camp. I am happy to say that I made great friends that I still talk to today!
If not for Theatre of the Imagination, I would not be where I am today. I was a wallflower as a child, but I so wanted to bloom. My dream was to be on the stage, but I was too nervous to try. My mom enrolled me in several drama camps around Kansas City, but none of them really clicked for me. Then I found TI and found my place!
I really liked how I did not have to try out for a role. I started when I was six, and I wanted to be a princess, but I also wanted to be a ninja. Mr. Miles wrote that part just for me, and I karate chopped my way through the play with the biggest smile on my face. Finding the place where I could be myself, silly and weird, was just what TI did for me.
Drama is all about bringing people together. I started at the TI drama camp not knowing anyone, and by the end of the first day, I had two new best friends. One of them is my partner at our law firm today.
I love how we practiced our plays, made up silly jokes, and just got to be goofy the whole time. Yes, we were learning, but it didn’t feel like school. The teachers made the atmosphere comfortable and inclusive. We all felt special. Nobody was ever the “Third Xmas Tree From The Left”.
