Got Drama? @ Bradley Playhouse
Dec 12 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Life is unpredictable. “Got Drama?” is an after-school community youth program that will meet Tuesdays from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at the Bradley Playhouse in Putnam, CT. This program is free to all youth, and offered to children ages 8-16. This trauma-informed, therapeutic intervention aims to provide a lively, hands-on opportunity for children to develop peer relationships, affect-regulation skills, and a greater sense of self, healthy communication techniques and enhance their feelings of safety and trust within their peer group and community. Group facilitator, actor/director/producer, Carl Mercier, has extensive experience in leading community youth theater. His Co-facilitator, Brittany Bonchuk, is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 10 years in child and adolescent behavioral health and trauma treatment. Together, their artistic and clinical expertise will be a perfect blend.
