From Page to Stage – Readers’ Theatre for Children Workshop
Birmingham Public Library (BPL), in partnership with Birmingham Children’s Theatre (BCT) and Junior League of Birmingham (JLB), would like to invite you to attend From Page to Stage, a Readers’ Theatre workshop for children, coming to a library near you!
In anticipation of the upcoming BCT performance of Peter Pan, BPL will be hosting free workshops at its area libraries. Children, aged 7 to 12, will have the opportunity to learn how storybook characters come alive though the magic of a theatrical play. JLB will be on hand to coach the children through the play and introduce them to related literature within the walls of their local library. Each child will also receive TWO FREE TICKETS (one child ticket and one adult ticket) to a Birmingham Children’s Theatre main stage performance of Peter Pan.
Space is limited, so please visit here to sign up now or visit/call a participating library to register a child for the workshop. A valid email address from the child or guardian is required to sign up.
