Children’s Theater Workshop

February 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Saturday, repeating until April 28, 2018

Eastport Arts Center (EAC), 36 Washington Street
Eastport, ME 04631 United States
+ Google Map

The EAC’s Children’s Theater Workhop staged “The Bubbles, the Beatles, and the BFG” in 2015 and “The Curse of the Mona Lisa” in 2017, receiving in return bouquets of roses, ovations and looks of pained confusion from its adult audiences. No matter! We forge ahead into the unknown, because we are aware that theater is always about risk and certainly never for the faint of heart. A new season is currently underway. All those interested in acting, directing, set design, costume, or backstage roles are urged to join us Saturdays from 10-11:30 am (snacks provided!) at the EAC. Tarah Waters and Jon Calame will co-direct the upcoming project, which is yet to be named. Please do come bask in the glory of underground Bohemian theater with us.
