What we'll do

Drop-in to the hottest storytime in town with Nili Yelin, aka "The Storybook Mom." A fun interactive custom designed storybook acting class/storytime for all ages, especially 2-6 years old. Nili brings words to life in an energetic, quirky performance style she calls "sit down stand up" combining her professional theatre career and years of writing and performing comedy to the world of picture books. Learn while having fun and get a workout for both your body and mind. We will turn some stories into plays with improv and acting games and have a showcase for family and friends at time to be determined. Storybook Theater class is held at Purple Monkey Playroom, and you're invited to stay and play both before and after the class - your admission is good for the entire day! No charge for parents and babies under 8 months who attend with their siblings.
