Creative Kids Day at Northern Sky Theater
For more than a decade, Northern Sky Theater has offered a day of creativity dedicated to children and teens interested in learning more about what it means to be part of a professional musical theater troupe in Door County – Creative Kids Day.
This year, in partnership with Write On, Door County and led by veteran company member and Associate Artistic Director Molly Rhode, participants will gain the additional experience of taking part in an interactive writing experience with the end result of performing a short play for their family and friends.
“Our world premiere, When Butter Churns to Gold, gives us the perfect opportunity to work with kids on writing their very own melodrama,” said Rhode. “We’ll brainstorm a storyline, learn about ‘stock’ characters, add some music, and basically take their ideas and run with them. Nine heroes, eight heroines, and no villains? No problem.”
Children and teens ages 6 to 16 will have the option of choosing one of two sessions taking place on July 17: 9:30 am – noon or 1 – 3:30 pm. Each session is limited to 30 participants. Admission to the event is $25 or a maximum of $60 for three siblings or more. A state park sticker is required to attend this event. Each participant also receives a t-shirt that they can have signed by the cast and crew. To register, call 920.854.6117 or visit northernskytheater.com.
