There’s always one in the family: the itty-bitty drama king or queen who knows life is a stage and plays dress up games that involve practicing an Oscar speech in the bathroom mirror while holding a shampoo bottle.

But how does one engage and nurture the precociousness of such a child? Taproot Theatre has an answer in its newest offering—with a darn cool name. Drama With Your Mama is a class for 1 to 3 year olds and a caregiver, and is geared to cultivate a child’s creativity and imagination by encouraging social, physical and vocal awareness and building self confidence.  Classes include creative play, movement and theatre games, and plenty of dress-up and silliness for both kids and adults.

Class size is 15 kids (plus caregivers) and classes are once a week for a six-week $75 session. You can also pay a $15 drop-in fee. The spring session starts March 29 and registration is online.

And who knows, maybe your mini-Sandra Bullock will remember this class as part of her humble acting beginning and thank you in her 2035 Oscar speech.
