    Timber Lake Playhouse has received a grant from the Freeport Community Foundation to fund their fall education offerings.  TLP will offer three programs that use the power of creative dramatics to inspire, astonish and engage area students ages 3 through 13.  The fall programs will include a literacy focus with elementary students, a character development focus with middle school students and a creative play focus with preschool students.


    The Preschool Program uses creative dramatics and play to help children learn about emotions, problem solving and relating to other people.  Through these experiences, children develop their imaginations and confidence while they improvise from age-appropriate stories, poems, fables, and legends.  This program will be held on the TLP campus on the stage of the playhouse.  Parents can find more information about this program and registration information by calling the box office at (815) 244-2035 or online at www.timberlakeplayhouse.org.


    The elementary program is literature and reading based.  TLP Teaching Artists read literary works to elementary classes and use creative drama activities to promote content understanding.  The iCAN Performance Program is designed for middle school students.  This works promotes social equity while supporting students’ social-emotional learning and a positive school climate.  Students will collaborate with the TLP Teaching Artists to create and develop their own play based on the topic of bullying. 


    Schools who are interested in bringing either of these TLP programs should contact Timber Lake Playhouse at (815) 244-2048.
