Very Hungry Caterpillar

Last Sunday, Theatre Action Project worked with 200 youth during two creative arts workshops hosted by TAP in conjunction with the Paramount Theatre’s showing of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.” The kids made some great caterpillars, parents were excited about the activity, and we were able to talk a little bit about what Theatre Action Project does.

Another welcomed surprise was the number of volunteers interested in this opportunity. We were fortunate to have volunteers high school aged to recently retired and the Texas Pre-Dental Society, College Forward, and AmeriCorps members in attendance.

Before each show began, an announcement was made about TAP (what we do and our website) and there was huge applause at that time. Pretty special! TAP will be back at the Paramount in the Spring for two more arts-based workshops. Come check us out!
