There is a mystery unfolding at the Lark School of the Arts... and we need your help to solve it. At this ancient school tasked with training its students in the Arts - Physical, Martial, and Magical - trouble is afoot. Calling upon their skills in character building, improv, and problem solving, students will play through this original pen and paper role playing game while building and exercising new theater tools. Bring your pencils and your imaginations, and come ready to play. 


half-day workshops

Join us on those pesky D65 Wednesday half-days for an afternoon workshop full of creative fun! We have workshops for 7-9 and 10-14 year olds, so everyone gets a chance to spend the afternoon at Mudlark (7-9 and 10-14 workshops run concurrently on the same dates).


MAY 1st from, 1-4:30PM
Crafters, storytellers, and jokesters fall in line… this is the workshop for you. Create and bring to life your very own puppets, giving all those characters in your head a face, a voice, and a name. Flexing our skills in character creation, improv, and imagination, it’ll be a real hands IN experience.


MAY 1st from 1-4:30PM
Think “Jim Henson and The Muppets” and you’ll be on the right track for this workshop preview of our newest installment of puppet camps. Focused on manipulating rather than building puppets, learn about the magic of the hand-in-mouth technique, which you’ll use to create an original show with puppets!
