Serious Fun Children’s Series

THE 2016-2017 HARRIS L. KEMPNER
SERIOUS FUN CHILDREN’S SERIES!

Each season The Grand offers a selection of performances to area students and school groups. Presented on weekdays during the school year, the performances offer a supplement to existing curricula for a nominally-priced ticket. All of The Grand’s children’s programs feature professional touring companies with reputations for high-quality productions.

Comprehensive study guides are available to schools prior to a performance which allow teachers to incorporate activities centered around the story into their curricula. Some performances offer a question and answer period with the performers following the show. Schools may choose to prepare these questions in advance as part of the learning experience

In addition, The Grand offers free workshops to those schools that have tickets to performances listed on the Serious Fun Children’s Series. Designed to enhance students’ learning experiences by providing a literary and live performance connection, the workshops are presented in the school classroom. Each workshop can accommodate twenty-four students per 30-minute session. Workshops are limited and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact The Grand’s Director of Education, Sarah Piel at 409.770.5066 to reserve workshops.

When Alice escapes her boredom of this world to venture into a dream of another, madcap high jinks and outlandish adventures are the order of the day. Lavishly costumed characters and Bits ‘N Pieces Puppet Theatre’s giant body puppets whirl, dance and sing on their journey through Lewis Carroll’s land of fantasy. The heroine learns it takes self-reliance and quick thinking to tame the comic nonsense of the Queen of Hearts, the Cheshire Cat and Wonderland’s other unpredictable residents.

Love That Dog

Thursday, April 13, 2017 – 10 am

Jack hates poetry. Only girls write it, and every time he tries to, his brain feels empty. But his teacher, Ms. Stretchberry, won’t stop giving her class poetry assignments – and Jack can’t avoid them. Then something amazing happens. The more he writes, the more he learns he does have something to say. With a fresh and deceptively simple style, acclaimed author Sharon Creech tells a story with enormous heart. Written as a series of free-verse poems from Jack’s point of view, Love That Dog shows how one boy finds his own voice with the help of a teacher, a writer, a pencil, some yellow paper and of course, a dog.

Recommended for grades 2nd and up
