Days & Knights of King Arthur was originally part of Wog Harts School of Natural Magic...
 

When Darlene Jenson orginally created Wog Harts School of Magic she modeled it after Harry Potter's Hogwarts. Using texts like Wizardology or Dragonology, and classes like Potions, Spirit Arts Class, Divination etc., a wonderfully, magical school was created... a school where we spoke and acted in the mythical and imaginal realm... Though Darlene is now focusing her full attention on Theatre Adventure Program, M3PLAY Magic Myth Mystery is a continuation of the magic that she began, for her son Elijah.

Though M3PLAY includes more diverse mythic and legendary characters and symbols of yesterday and today, we continue to find our otherwordly home in the same location and to delve into the mysteries and magic as we did at Wog Harts.

     
 



 
We nurture the ancient art of shapeshiftng into dragons and other magical creatures... We learn the Code of Chivalry and Sword Choreography... We learn and practice ways to communicate and make power sharing decisions in Roundtable Council... We tell stories and enact theatre in Circle of the Bards... We connect with and celebrate Nature and the Beings with whom we share our world.
