Theatre LILA's Whoopensocker
Wed, May 31
Promenade Hall: Free
Theatre LILA and UW-Madison School of Education present The Whoopensocker Show! Celebrating the writing and creativity of third grade students from MMSD elementary schools. In a six-week theatre residency Whoopensocker teaching artists engaged 3rd grade classrooms in Sandburg, Lincoln and Emerson Elementary schools to explore exercises in creativity, expression, writing and collaboration. The children’s stories and poems were then put in the hands of LILA actors, directors and musicians to create a full-length performance at each school.
Now everyone gets to experience the culmination of the creativity of these 3rd graders as Theatre LILA brings their stories to the stage at the Overture Center. Join the fun for this free community performance!
PRELUDE is Overture’s new education and engagement program designed to mentor local artists, companies and organizations in producing performance based productions in Promenade Hall.
