Has your child ever wanted to play a prince, princess, king or queen? Do the singing seven dwarfs or magical fairies tickle your fancy? Our workshop is just the right place to try out different roles from different fairy tales. We do warm up games, movement activities, theater games to prepare our little actors for the stage. We then choose a fairytale that we will rehearse and act out as a group. Each child picks their own role and of course we have costumes to complete the transformation! At the end of the week, there is a presentation for friends and family.
We are using elements of The Galli Method® to teach.
“My daughter has been going to Galli Theatre since she was 3 years old. She admires Barbara and her wonderful crew! Amazing plays and shows that your child will simply love!” – May Ohebshalom, January 2021
“Re: After-school theater class – our daughter loves to be there! She has been a Galli student at the Tribeca Location for 2 years. Her social and theatrical growth is re-affirmed at semester end performaces. Much credit due to Barbara and Team for creating a (COVID) safe, warm, entertaining, and learning space for her students. Highly recommended, and we look forward to continuing future classes!” – Roger Kwan, January 2021
“My five year old has really come into his own since he started participating in the Galli Theater after school program and vacation camps (in German and English). He loves to make people laugh on stage and can’t wait to perform German fairy tales. It’s such a great development program for kids who feel shy in front of others and can learn how to express themselves with confidence. I highly recommend Barbara and her team. They are amazing with kids and have a great sense of humor which makes the shows so much fun to watch. Even the fairy tales played by the Galli team actors are worth watching with the whole family.” – Stephanie Quappe, January 2021
“My daughter has attended many Theater summer camps and workshops with Galli Theater in German from the age of 3 onwards. She loves working with this group especially Simon, who is such a talented actor himself and is very patient and loving with the kids. Their latest theatre piece was Little Red Riding Hood in German “Rotkäppchen”. We brought the CD home and now my 1.5 year old and my 5 year old sing and dance to it every day. Great times, great memories and great lessons. Keep up the good work Galli Team! We love you!” – Shabnam Rezaei
“Our 7 and 5 year olds attended the winter break camp and had a blast! This is our daughter’s fourth year and our son’s second, and they look forward to the experience all year long. The group picks a show, puts it together with help from the instructors, and performs at the end of the week. It is adorable and all of the children genuinely seem to be enjoying themselves on stage. Highly recommended!” – Alejandro Benchimol
“Galli’s after school and summer camps are absolutely amazing. Our daughter did it several times and loved it every time. The plays by the group are also always worth a visit. For kids and adults!” – Joachim Trautmann
“Our daughter is partizipating in the after school program and in spring/summer camps for more than 3 years and she always has a great time. We appreciate the passion the staff takes putting a show together at the end of a semester or at the end of a camp. ” – Florian Greiner
Our 6-year-old daughter just spent the week at Galli Theater and she loves it. The people are so nice and she was looking forward to going back again. – Mike Polanski
My 8 year old daughter has been doing Galli camps and classes for the past 4 years and always enjoys them. She’s thrilled to spend time with Simon and the team and I’m always amazed how they manage to put on a full performance at the end of the camp and to see the proud look of accomplishment on all their faces. Communication is easy and responsive with the parents and the entire team are both warm, fun and engaging with the kids both as a group and at an individual level. They really seem to take the time to get to know the kids and my daughter has a great affection for them as a result. I highly recommend Galli Theater!! – Sara Bause Mason
Galli Theater has been a wonderful place for my kids to learn, have fun and explore their creativity. Simon and his team are fantastic actors and have a great ability to pull out a performance from even the most shy child and a giggle out of everyone. It’s a great afterschool opportunity and the summer camp is simply divine, the end of week performances make for great memories. I highly recommend it. – Nina Kinoti Metz
