Keeping Up With The Kids
Free Virtual Schooltime Performance
The Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall’s Education & Community Engagement Department is thrilled to announce a FREE streaming ofTheaterWorksUSA’s Charlotte’s Web. Based on the popular children’s book, this performance was cancelled this past spring due to COVID-19. “We are so happy to bring this well-loved story to students across the region in a way that is safe and accessible,” says Kelli Maldonado, Director of Education & Community Engagement. This free program for all schools will be available for streaming from December 7-20. Complimentary LIVE Zoom workshops with teaching artists are also available at no charge. Topics include mood/setting, character traits and more. The program is recommended for grades K-5, and teachers can register now on a first come, first served basis through this link: www.surveymonkey.com/r/CharlottesWebtix. TheaterWorksUSA’s Charlotte’s Web is based on E.B. White’s loving story of the friendship between a pig named Wilbur and a little gray spider named Charlotte. All 2020 Virtual Schooltime Performances and Workshops are available for free to schools through the generosity of the Van Wezel Foundation.
