From Page to Stage: Play to Win – 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: Play to Win — A Readers’ Theater Workshop for Children.

In anticipation of the upcoming BCT performance of Play to Win, 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 Play to Win production in February 2015.

Play to Win is a bright, snappy one-hour musical about the man who broke the color barrier in professional baseball. Although it is aimed at young audiences, all ages will enjoy this portrayal of Jackie Robinson's determination to be the best despite seemingly insurmountable odds. Come celebrate the story of Jackie Robinson, an iconic figure from American history who showed us the power of determination and perseverance in the face of injustice.

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