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 Jungle Book – A Readers’ Theater Workshop for Children.
In anticipation of the upcoming BCT performance of The Jungle Book, BPL will be hosting free workshops at several of its area libraries. Children, aged 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 The Jungle Book production in September–October 2017.
This new adaptation of the beloved Rudyard Kipling story finds a child lost in the Indian jungle, where he is adopted by Baloo the Bear, Bagheera the panther, and all the beasts who call the mysterious wilderness home. This fast-paced retelling keeps you perched on the edge of your seat as young Mowgli comes face-to-face with sneaky monkeys, noisy vultures, and his mortal enemy: the tiger, Shere Khan.
Workshop space is limited, so register online through the BPL events calendar or contact your participating library location to register a child for the workshop. Libraries and dates are as follows:
