As the Mom of a first year Mudd Butt, I was surprised to discover that the kids were not given a full script until two weeks into the session. Instead, they used props and improvisation to work on different aspects of the story while building interesting characters. In this interview, Sally and Kim give us some insight into their unique teaching techniques, and show us how a single prop can inspire a character.
