Description

Join us for a new program on Thursdays, where we take the page to the stage! This year we will be presenting the story of Pinocchio, inspired by our professional production of The Adventures of Pinocchio, by Neil Bartram and Brian Hill. Students will use scenes from Bartram and Hill’s musical, as well as from other adaptations of the story, to present their very own play! The final performance will include costumes, set and props from YPT’s own collection and production.

In the Fall, students will:
– work on selected scenes from The Adventures of Pinocchio that YPT has onstage this Fall,
– develop their ability to bring a character’s lines to life, and
– present these scenes for family and friends.

In the Winter and Spring, students will:
– build towards performing the whole story,
– develop performance skills,
– discover other adaptations of this story, and
– perform their play on our Mainstage, with sets, props and costumes!
