Using Theatre to teach self-expression and collaboration

The Imaginaries is the umbrella organization that includes Caitlin's many theatrical ventures. From running summer drama camps to creating and producing original musicals, Caitlin loves introducing students to theatre and using drama to encourage collaboration, creativity, and self-expression. Theater presents young people with a chance to not only discover their individual gifts, but also to work as an ensemble, explore literature and history, and creatively imagine a brighter future. Drama students are challenged to take risks, use their imaginations, and empathize with the larger world as they devise new pieces of theater.

Original Musicals

The Imaginaries original musicals are a joint effort between motivated drama students and professional artists. With the help of a composer and a script writer, students can bring their wildest dreams to life, envisioning colorful characters and contributing to lyrics, dialogue, and story lines. By combining meaningful narratives with catchy songs, these original musicals allow students to sing, dance, and act their hears out while delivering affirmational and empowering messages.

 

Once Upon a Town 

The children of the most beloved fairy tale characters band together to shake off their parents' legacies and expectations. Together they find their own individual identities and join forces to defeat evil. 

Hip hop health

In this high-energy musical, the audience is invited to join the protagonist on a journey to personal health as she spends the day watching TV and channel surfing her way to a thorough understanding of healthy living. 

Seven Generations

Inspired by the students' real life ancestors, Seven Generations helps performers and audience members connect with their forefathers and foremothers, consider their own legacies, and discover thoughtful and beneficial ways to provide for the generations to come.

We are all connected

When the local watering hole becomes contaminated, the nocturnal and diurnal forest animals must put aside their differences to address the disaster. Through trial and error, they learn that quick fixes don't work. Instead, they must collaborate to get to the root of the problem.

Remaking the world

Superheroes travel from far and wide to the International Superhero Convention, where they attend workshops and panel discussions, visit merchandise booths, and strengthen the bonds within their community. When disaster strikes, they must rise to occasion and use their super skills to remake the world.
