Introduce Your Children to Musical Theater with JCC's CenterStage
The Jewish Community Center of Louisville's CenterStage is currently offering a musical specifically for children between Kindergarten and 5th grade. CenterStage has a program called Acting Out, which is a children's theater group that travels to schools and community centers. The programs are approximately 60 minutes in length and the full production (actors, costumes, props, and audio) is provided. Thirty days prior to the performance, suggested activities and study guides are provided and after the show, the actors open a discussion with the children. For the schools, the program helps in Arts and Humanities while meeting Common Core Standards.
While the program typically travels to schools and community centers, public performances are also available. The show currently offered is "The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig." and the public performances are being offered on April 17, 2016 and May 15, 2016, both at 2:00 pm. The musical is based on the book of the same name and is a modern take on the classic Three Little Pigs fable.
CenterStage is located at the Jewish Community Center at 3600 Dutchmans Ln and performs six or seven Broadway productions each year. Tickets, found at CenterStage's website, for "The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig" are $18.00 for adults and $12.00 for children 10 and under. The show is a way to introduce your children to musical theater, so as they grow, they will enjoy live theater productions.
