Good News Gus visits AWIP this Saturday for an exclusive performance+workshop!

Master Classes have been a staple of A Work in Progress since we were founded 5 years ago. We believe that students should have as many opportunities as possible to learn from professionals in their field, to explore different avenues of the arts that they may not otherwise have the chance to.  Last month students were able to learn from broadway performers, and this month (on Saturday!) we bring you into the world of PUPPETRY! Students will meet Good News Gus and his friend Harry, who are on a mission to inspire kids with all things happy.


Harry has been in the puppeteering business for almost 20 years, including working with the masterminds on Sesame Street for several years. Click here and here for more information about Gus.


Join us for a performance geared towards all ages, followed by a master class for ages 10+ where students can learn all about the art of puppetry and what it entails to pursue this art form. Space is limited so register now!

  • 3:00-3:30: An interactive performance for all ages!

  • 3:45-4:45: An exclusive workshop for ages 10+ — learn all about puppets and the industry

  • COST: $5 for performance only; $10 for performance and workshop

  • LOCATION: SEEN RI in Pawtucket

See you there!

NARNIA: Two weeks away!

The Act Two cast was excited about their costumes!

Close to 75 students are two weeks away from performing in our fifth annual junior production. This year, we are exploring the classic series by C.S. Lewis, with scenes from several books. Students in our acting classes, dance classes, and chorus classes will be presenting this heartwarming tale, and tickets are flying fast! At only $5/ticket, it’s the perfect way to support the homeschooling community and our efforts at A Work in Progress to continue offering high quality art at the lowest costs possible.

“Narnia” will be presented on Saturday, April 7 @2:00 on the Tolman Stage in Pawtucket. Come see our youngest students take the big stage and shine in the spotlights! Even more: our junior productions are intern-led; meaning homeschoolers are at the helm from the artistic design, directing, and teaching to backstage, media, and more.
