The Pre-show Workshop
In addition to the one hour musical, the audience receives a special treat - interactive arts workshops prior to the 11a family performance. Here the audience learns about the original book and how we turned it into a musical. We discuss the themes of the show and how the arts bring literature to life. Then the kids and their families make a special art project and take it home as a souvenir. Now when they watch the show, they are familiar with the art forms and themes represented in the production.
The whole program (pre-show workshop and actual show) is approximately 2 hours long.
