From Page to Stage: Rosa Parks & the Montgomery Bus Boycott – A Readers' 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: Rosa Parks & the Montgomery Bus Boycott – A Readers’ Theater Workshop for Children.
In anticipation of the upcoming BCT performance of Rosa Parks & the Montgomery Bus Boycott, 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 Rosa Parks & the Montgomery Bus Boycott production in January and February 2018.
Sixty years after the Montgomery bus boycott, Rosa Parks is remembered as the “Mother of the Civil Rights Movement.” With deep intensity and uplifting songs of the struggle, this play tells her uniquely moving American story. Everyone makes a difference.
Workshop space is limited, so registration is required. 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:
Avondale Regional Branch Library: Sunday, January 28, 2:30 p.m.
