Theater at Monmouth

February 19, 2012

April and May calendar filled with student opps

“I have seen many of this theater’s school productions and they are always entertaining as well as containing some sort of message. It’s a great way to get the theater arts into schools”, states music educator Cynthia McGuire.

This year, the elementary school production is “The Fool of the World and the Flying Ship” adapted by Bill Van Horn based on the Russian folktale by Andrew Lang. In the story, the fool sets of on an adventure to change his life.  Along the way he learns the power of believing in yourself, the value of friendship, and the importance of following your dreams.

Also touring is a 50-minute adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.”  This play is recommended for students in grades 6-9. Schools may choose to bring the productions to their hometown or take a field trip to historic Cumston Hall in beautiful Monmouth, Maine.

Information on the dates, plays, and workshops is available at this link:
