Texas Storybook Theatre performs at Ritz May 4
Texas troupe promotes literacy throughout world
WELLINGTON, Texas – The Wellington Ritz Theatre is proud to present the Texas Storybook Theatre and their performance of “Goldifox & the Two Hares” at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, May 4.
The Storybook Theatre displays a dynamic style of “edutainment.” It combines whimsy, comedy, and fresh takes on children’s classics to entertain and promote literacy among young audiences. The company has become one of the most sought after children’s theaters in the nation since it was established 24 years ago by owner and performer, Lynn Draper. Since then the group has performed for over two million children worldwide in theaters, schools, festivals, workshops, churches, and businesses. It is sponsored by the Texas Commission on the Arts and is recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts as an “American Masterpieces” touring artist.
On May 4, the group will arrive in Wellington to present an original story titled “Goldifox and the Two Hares.” This show puts an eccentric twist on an old fairy tale while discussing such important childhood topics as proper nutrition and building friendships. They will perform for Wellington Elementary School earlier in the day and will then provide a special public performance that evening.
The Ritz is especially pleased to offer this evening event free of charge. Attendees are encouraged to bring a donation of a reusable water bottle or cash in support of the Wellington Opportunity Center’s Summer Program.
