Wee Giant Theatre offers a theatre component to the South Shore Waldorf School’s fall curriculum offering workshops to the upper grades culminating in a magical, musical candle lit walk through the forest. Inspired by All Souls Day in Mexico, the children perform “Halloween Whispers” using Wee Giant’s costumes and giant puppets celebrating our ancestors and those we admire that came before us.
