Announcing our next 2019 MEF grant recipient....Tyne Turcotte, Grade 5 Teacher at Manchester Elementary School, who received funding to work with her colleagues to establish a theater arts program. This project will allow students of Manchester Elementary School to learn about theater arts and to strengthen the bonds between school and community through the final production. The Lion King Experience is an immersive, project-based exploration of theater-making. This easy to use program has been developed to provide all the tools needed to introduce theater in the classroom and to produce their very own production of The Lion King. In addition to a performance license to produce The Lion King KIDS, a 30-minute adaptation created especially for the strengths and skill level of elementary school students, The Lion King Experience includes a ShowKit™ of materials to help bring the production to life and a rigorous 11-session curriculum for 3rd-6th grade students that explores the fundamentals of theater and theater crafts. Wow, what an amazing experience for these elementary school children! A big thank you to Tyne and our MEF donors for making this possible!
