Imagination Theater's 9th Annual Illuminate Benefit

  • Creating Empathy Superheros in "Someone Else's Shoes"

    Saturday November 9, 2019 at 3:00 p.m.

    Join Imagination Theater and Judy Freedman for an afternoon of creating empathy superheros!  Written in collaboration with author and social worker, Judy Freedman, “Someone Else’s Shoes” is a participatory play that creates empathy superheros by teaching kids three main strategies. Kid’s get to come up on stage and role-play with Imagination Theater’s professional actors to practice being empathy superheros in fictional situations. While the kids experience the show, parents can get their own workshop on teaching empathy to kids by none other than Judy Freedman, author of “Easing the Teasing”. At the end of the day, parents will get to see a bit of what the kid’s learned about becoming empathy superheros and will have their own tool set to continue the conversations at home.

    When?  Saturday November 9th from 3-4:30 p.m.
