First and foremost, we are a theater company that provides professional theater performances that enlighten, enrich and engage young people and families. And digging a little deeper reveals that we are dedicated to creating new material. So we were thrilled to sit through the preview of THE MAGIC BICYCLE, an original play that we commissioned from playwright John Olive.
Which brings us to the third arm of our organization: Theater in Education. Our teaching artists go out to schools and use theater as a tool to teach a specific curriculum identified by the classroom teacher. This evening, Julia Magnasco, Education Director, led guests in a pre-show workshop that fired up their synapses and prepared them to better appreciate the time-travel themes presented in THE MAGIC BICYCLE.
THE MAGIC BICYCLE runs through February 5th at the Todd Wehr Theater. Tickets begin at $11.50 Please click here to order.
