Wild Swan Theater on Friday
As you know, we will be heading once again to Wild Swan Theater for one of their numerous productions. We are very lucky to have such a great children's theater in our city! On Friday, we will be seeing Firebird, which is described on the Wild Swan materials:
Young Ivan, Prince of Russia, must outwit one evil character after another in his quest to find the Firebird who has been stealing the Czar's golden apples. A thrilling version of the classic Russian folktale, Wild Swan's production features a host of fantastical creatures including the witch Baba Yaga, Nurl the Gnome, and Sistchik the Snake King as well as swirling Russian folk dancing set to a lively balalaika score.
I found an interesting article called Why Children's Theater Matters. Click on the highlighted text to read why we take children to the theater - it is an important part of our curriculum, for good reason!
Many thanks to Gabrielle and Jeff for driving and chaperoning!
