About Whoopensocker:  “Whoopensocker is an education residency that uses theater as a tool to teach creative writing and social-emotional skills to young students…. Whoopensocker’s teaching artists encourage students to share their great ideas through writing and performance. After the residency, we celebrate the students at a performance where adult performers present student-written work adapted for the stage. The ultimate goal is to show students the power of their ideas and creativity through play and artistic expression.”
