From Page to Stage: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer – A Reader’s Theater Workshop for Children



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: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer — A Readers’ Theater Workshop for Children.

In anticipation of the upcoming BCT performance of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, 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 The Adventures of Tom Sawyer production on February 8, 2014, at 2:00 p.m.

Tom’s adventures begin with a whitewashed fence, a sweet girl named Becky, Huck Finn, and tales of pirating and treasure hunting. After a surprise funeral and a murder trial where the truth is uncovered, the audience will see Tom not only as an adventurer, but also a moral hero. Join the Birmingham Public Library and the Birmingham Children’s Theatre for lessons of bravery, truth, and adventure where Tom meets his match and mischievous fun begins.

Workshop space is limited, so contact your participating library location to register a child for the workshop. Libraries and dates are as follows:

Avondale: January 18 – 11:00 a.m.
