Summer Arts Camp, Week 8: Boots & Her Brothers

For the entire month of August, we’re putting on a play!  Have your kids always wanted to be on stage?  Now is their chance!  They will experience what it is like to have a role, practice lines, learn what stage right means, and then perform in front of family and friends.

The play is “Boots and his Brothers” (although we’ve adapted it to Boots and HER Brothers).  It is based on a folktale from Norway, retold by Elaine L. Lindy and has generously been provided by Whootie Owl.  We had a read-through of the script and everyone approves!

Auditions were last week and the major roles have been chosen.  However, if your child wasn’t able to come last week, don’t let that keep him or her away this week.  There is plenty of room for townspeople, set designers, costumers, stage hands, and more!

Wednesdays, August 5-26, 9-11am
performance on Wednesday, August 26th at 10:30am

This fun play with a positive message about curiosity, bravery, and enchantment is perfect for first time performers entering grades 3-5.  There are parts for those looking to learn lines as well as for those looking to experience just being on stage. Many hands make light work, so older children looking to work as production assistants are welcome to join the crew!  We’ll need a cast of ten children with lots of room for more (a commitment to attend all dates is strongly encouraged for a speaking part in the play)!  No materials cost, but be prepared for homework and a performance!

Join us at the gazebo at the Bowdoinham waterfront at 9 am.  Children are $5 each or $8 per family.  For more information about Merrymeeting Art Center’s Summer Arts Camp, visit here.
