Portland Stage's Theater for Kids would like to read the book Four Feet Two Sandals by Karen Lynn Williams during our "Play Me a Story" reading & workshop series. The "Play Me a Story" series is running on Saturday mornings from January through April at Portland Stage, a professional non-profit theater in Portland Maine. We would like to read Four Feet Two Sandals on one Saturday morning during our April program as part of our Stories from Around the World series.
"Play Me a Story" is an interactive readers theater workshop for children between the ages of 4-10. To set the scene, our affiliate actors have a staged reading of the books. Following the performance, the audience is asked to participate in a workshop relating to the story that has just been read. The workshop will focus on a particular character, place or situation that the story illuminates.
Authors who have participated in Theater for Kids at Portland Stage include Tomie dePaola, Jon Scieszka, Melinda Long, Judy Schachner, Kevin Henkes, Jan Brett, William Steig, Helen Lester, Peter Brown, Doreen Cronin plus many others. You can see our recent programs online at http://www.portlandstage.org/Page.128.Past+ProgramsWhat great company! Stay tuned for more about this program and the prodcution of Four Feet Two Sandals.
Four Feet Two Sandals would be fantastic additions to our April Stories from Around the World series - our actors would love to bring it to life for the children in our community!
