News Story

For ages 5+

This week Sarah Rose and Ruxy show you how you can tell stories by using objects at home in exciting new ways. They play a fun guessing game, Yes It Is! and then show you how to create your own brand new story using one of your props and your imagination.

For this episode you’ll need some objects from your house - anything at all!

Theatre makers Sarah Rose Graber and Ruxy Cantir lead a series of interactive videos about how to create and tell stories at home. Imaginations will be unleashed and stories created from everyday surroundings. From using different story structures and bringing characters to life to discovering new and exciting ways to engage with the objects at home, each new episode will result in at least one original tale to share with friends and family.
