From Page to Stage: The Secret Garden – 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 Secret Garden — A Readers’ Theater Workshop for Children.

In anticipation of the upcoming BCT performance of The Secret Garden, 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 Secret Garden production on Saturday, April 12, 2014, at 2:00 p.m.

In an exciting musical production of this familiar tale, Mary Lennox, a willful, young orphan, is sent to live with her brooding uncle at gloomy Misselthwaite Manor. Discovering a hidden, neglected garden, Mary plants the seeds of new life for all those drawn into her secret refuge.

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

Avondale: April 6 at 2:30 p.m.
Central: March 9 at 2:30 p.m.
East Lake: March 8 at 2:30 p.m.
