From Page to Stage: Cinderella: An Outrageous Fairytale – 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: Cinderella: An Outrageous Fairytale – A Readers’ Theater Workshop for Children.

In anticipation of the upcoming BCT performance of Cinderella: An Outrageous Fairytale, 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 Cinderella: An Outrageous Fairytale production in December 2017.

Hold on to your pumpkins! This is a Cinderella for the holiday season. With contemporary songs, gags, and mayhem, you’ll jeer at the deliciously dysfunctional stepmother and sisters as much as you’ll cheer for Cinderella in her quest to attend the magnificent ball and fulfill her destiny. Put on your glass slippers and enjoy this spectacular and outrageous telling of our unique Cinderella, guaranteed to delight.

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:
