From Page to Stage: Einstein is a Dummy – 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: Einstein is a Dummy – A Reader's Theater Workshop for Children.
In anticipation of the upcoming BCT performance of Einstein is a Dummy, BPL will be hosting free workshops at several of its area libraries. Children, aged 5 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 Einstein is a Dummy production in January and February 2017.
As an adult, Albert Einstein changed our view of the universe. But as a boy, he struggled with the same issues any 12-year-old might—keeping up with violin lessons, impressing the girl next door, and, oh yeah, comprehending the fundamental relationship of space and time to the speed of light, of course.
This uplifting play about a fictional day in young Einstein's life confirms that each of us is both ordinary and special. With an engaging, original score, a healthy dose of imagination and the help of a mysterious cat, Einstein Is a Dummy reveals life's atomic possibilities.
Workshop space is limited, so register a child for the workshop online through the BPL calendar or call your participating library. Libraries and dates are as follows:
