You drop your excited children off for 6-8 weeks and at the end of the session, the entire team of Village Arts has created a beautiful production made solely from a ton of passion and a lot of hard work.  We watched our child turn into an incredibly brave, outgoing, hilarious, and (who knew) really talented kid come to life. It truly is magical.
