Since 1993, ArtReach has been a TCA collaborative program with local public and private schools to provide professional theatre performances for all school children, grades Pre-K through 12. Performances take place at TCA’s theater during the school day. Recycled thrift store items are given new life in this fantastic, frenetic retelling based on the Collodi classic text. Found-object puppet characters are constructed from various recycled things like kitchen utensils, baskets and tennis rackets. In addition to the found-object puppets, this original one-man “tour de farce” combines authentic Italian music, Commedia-style mask work, and plenty of audience participation. Produced with a grant from the Jim Henson Foundation, Inc. Geared towards grades Pre-K and K Contact: Mary Oglesby | email@example.com | (229) 226-0588 .
