Children's Theatre Workshop is a class offered in the Department of Communication, Media and Theatre  designed to cover all aspects of production culminating in performances for elementary and  middle school  students.
Fall 2007 Semester Presentation
From 5 November to 5 December the Children’s Theatre Workshop, a CMT Department class, gave 12 performances of WILEY AND THE HAIRY MAN to almost 900 area school children in grades 2 through 8.

WILEY AND THE HAIRY MAN tells the story of a young boy haunted by nightmares - or perhaps a real monster ?! – and how he comes to terms with his fears and learns to stand on his own.  Based on an African American folk tale, playwright Susan Zeder combines rhythm and rhyme to create a magical world.
