A holiday theater workshop for children ages 6 to 9 will be offered Sunday afternoon at the Westport Historical Society.

The workshop is from 1 to 5 p.m. at the society's headquarters, 25 Avery Place, sponsors said, and is designed to occupy children while parents do holiday shopping.

Participants will work on a brief play, "The Elves and the Shoemaker," to be presented at the end of the day, and on crafts projects to support the production, according to Elizabeth Donnelly, a professional actress and artist who will lead the workshop.

The event is co-sponsored by the society and Donnelly. The cost is $35, and $10 from each fee will be donated to the historical society, sponsors said.
