EXPLORING WANDERKOOK WORKSHOP with Jonny Peiffer
This camp will use the show Wanderkook: The Adventures of Oliver Z., created by 
Jonny Peiffer, as a model for learning how to create a brand new multi-media production 
through collaboration. Wanderkook, which will be presented at West End Studio Theatre 
(PMAC’s neighbor) on June 16-25, 2017, is a true collaboration among regional artists. 
With an original script by Dan Beaulieu, music by Jonny Peiffer and artwork by Dean 
Diggins, it also includes dance, animation and video­­ —all combined to mesmerizing 
effect to tell the fantastic story of Wanderkook’s meetings with the many tribes of an 
undiscovered land. Over the course of the week, students will create their very own 
chapters in this story, developing new scenes and characters together. They will then 
learn to incorporate music, creative writing, art, animation, and more to tell their original 
story. Students will learn how to communicate with artists of different disciplines and 
media, while working together toward a shared ultimate goal. The week will culminate 
with a performance of the students’ creation.
