Sunday Children’s Workshop & Presentation_consisted of a rehearsal and a presentation of The Caretaker by dyslexic children of mixed ages and abilities who are enthusiastic about the performing arts. The workshop focused on script reading, cold reading, and rehearsed reading using performing arts techniques.  At the end of the workshop, parents were invited to watch the presentation of The Caretaker. The positive response was overwhelming.
