From Page to Stage: James and the Giant Peach – 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: James and the Giant Peach – A Readers’ Theater Workshop for Children.
In anticipation of the upcoming BCT performance of James and the Giant Peach, BPL will be hosting free workshops at several of its area libraries. Children, ages 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 James and the Giant Peach production in April 2017.
A magical peach! An imprisoned boy! Insect friends! An incredible journey! This amazing adventure of James Henry Trotter will fulfill the fantasy of anyone who has ever dreamed of escape. Roald Dahl's story comes hilariously to life in this delightful dramatization that reveals the wickedness of some, the goodness of others, and the indecision encountered by many when they are faced with crises. Workshop space is limited, so contact your participating library location to register a child for the workshop. Libraries and dates are as follows:
Avondale: Sunday, March 26, 2:30 p.m.
East Lake: Saturday, March 25, 2:30 p.m.
Five Points West: Sunday, March 26, 2:30 p.m. (includes special visit by the JLB Yummy Truck)
