From Page to Stage: Tuxedo Junction - 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: Tuxedo Junction – A Readers’ Theater Workshop for Children.
In anticipation of the upcoming BCT performance of Tuxedo Junction – A Celebration of Erskine Hawkins, BPL will be hosting free workshops at several of its area libraries. Children, age 7 to 12, will learn how stories 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 Tuxedo Junction production in February 2016.
You’ll tap your toes and dance in the aisles as BCT presents Tuxedo Junction, a musical based on the early life of legendary jazz musician, and Birmingham native, Erskine Hawkins. Honoring Black History Month and the first inductee in the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame, join us on the journey of a musician and athlete who learned that life is about making choices—and experience live jazz music along the way.
Workshop space is limited, so contact your participating library location to register a child for the workshop. Libraries and dates are as follows:
Avondale Regional Branch Library - Sunday, January 24, 2:30 p.m.
Central Library - Sunday, January 31, 2:30 p.m.
East Lake Branch Library - Saturday, January 23, 2:30 p.m.
