From Page to Stage: Babes in Toyland – 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: Babes in Toyland — A Readers’ Theater Workshop for Children.

In anticipation of the upcoming BCT performance of Babes in Toyland, 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 Babes in Toyland production in December.

Widow Piper’s husband has passed away and left her alone with 14 children working in a toy factory for mean Barnaby. Three of her children have already disappeared and now it seems like Barnaby is plotting to get rid of three more. Can the children in Toyland escape his evil plot, find the other missing children, and be home in time to spend Christmas together as a family? Join us for this musical about adventure, hope and the power of family.
