ASU Theatre announces 2008 Summer Children's Theatre season

May 14, 2008 -- The Arkansas State University Theatre has released the schedule for the 2008 ASU Summer Children’s Theatre season. All performances will be held at Fowler Center, 201 Olympic Drive, Jonesboro, on the ASU campus.

The 13th season of children’s theatre at ASU will open with “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” adapted by Judith Baker Kase from a tale by the Brothers Grimm. Mirror, Mirror on the wall! Who’s the fairest of them all?  Is it Snow White?  Is it the evil Queen?  Maybe it’s one of the seven dwarfs. This play provides fun for the whole family as the audience learns the identity of the “fairest of them all.”

"Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" opens ASU's 2008 Summer Children's Theatre season.

Performance dates for “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” are Wednesday, June 18, at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.; Thursday, June 19, at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.; and Friday, June 20, at 10 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. This production of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” is sponsored by the ASU Theatre Guild.

The second production of the 2008 season will be “Jack and the Bean Stalk,” dramatized by William Glennon. Fe, Fi, Fo, Fum—this classic tale comes to life with rhymes, song, dance, magic beans, and lots of audience participation. The audience of all ages can join Jack, the Giant, and the Golden Harp for lots of fun. This wonderful version of the classic story is reflective of Bill Glennon’s gifts of expression, demonstrating his wit, sense of adventure, and warmth. A Fairy Godfather and Junior, his assistant (still in training to become a full-fledged fairy godfather), help Jack in his adventures in the kingdom of the Giant.

"Jack and the Bean Stalk" is the second offering from ASU Summer Children's Theatre.

Performance dates for "Jack and the Bean Stalk" are Wednesday, July 23, at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.; Thursday, July 24, at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.; and Friday, July 25, at 10 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. This production of “Jack and the Bean Stalk” is sponsored by the Golden Grotto and the ASU Theatre Guild.
