A.R.T. to perform 'Beans, Bags, Bravery' for younger students
MIDDLEBURY — On Oct. 10-18, the Addison Repertory theater’s acting class will be touring local elementary schools, sharing their own original children’s show.
This year’s show, titled “Beans, Bags, and Bravery,” is a compilation of classic children’s stories retold through dramatic movement. “Beans, Bags, and Bravery” is performed by A.R.T. actors dressed in black with limited props, costumes and dialogue. Directed by Steve Small and produced by Penelope Wade, this year’s show is a three part production consisting of classic and contemporary stories: “Jack and the Beanstalk,” “Where the Wild Things Are” and “The Paperbag Princess.”
“Beans, Bags, and Bravery” provides not only an exciting world of imagination but also allows children of all ages to be exposed to, and included in, the wonderful world of theatrical arts. The children’s show is a great way to engage students in theatre and let them learn about the performing arts at an introductory level and maybe even learn a few important lessons.
