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: And in This Corner: Cassius Clay – A Readers’ Theater Workshop for Children.
In anticipation of the upcoming BCT performance of School House Rock Live!, 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 And in This Corner: Cassius Clay production on October 6 or 7, 2018.
Ding! Ding! Ding! A young Cassius Clay Jr. takes his first steps into the ring and on the path to becoming boxing legend Muhammad Ali. This historical drama takes our audiences back to Jim Crow Louisville where, despite a culture of segregation and racism, a young man finds inspiration in his community and the power of his own potential.
Workshop space is limited, so register online through the BPL events calendar or call your participating library location.
