From Page to Stage: Seussical – A Reader’s Theater Workshop for Children to Begin Birmingham Public Library Tour on Saturday, November 14
BIRMINGHAM, Alabama—The Birmingham Public Library (BPL), in partnership with the Birmingham Children’s Theatre
(BCT) and Junior League of Birmingham
(JLB), would like to invite you to attend From Page to Stage: Seussical –
A Reader’s Theater Workshop for Children.
In anticipation of the upcoming BCT performance of Seussical,
BPL will be hosting free workshops at several of its area libraries. Children aged 7 to 12 will learn how storybook characters come alive through the magic of theater. JLB members will coach the children and introduce them to similar literature located in their local library. Each child will receive two free tickets (one child and one adult ticket) to the BCT Seussical
production in December 2015.
Horton the elephant hears a small sound coming from a tiny speck of dust and discovers a whole world of people called Whos! Horton vows to take care of them because a person’s a person no matter how small. All the animals, however, think Horton is crazy. Can Horton convince them there really is a whole world they can’t see?
Seussical is a spectacular musical where stories of Dr. Seuss come alive before your eyes demonstrating the power of imagination, dedication, and thinks. Workshop space is limited, so contact your participating library location to register a child for the workshop.
