A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM – ON TOUR TO SCHOOLS

The National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest presents Shakespeare in American Communities. BTE is one of 40 professional theater companies selected to participate in bringing the finest productions of Shakespeare to middle- and high-school students in communities across the United States. This is the twelfth year of this national program, the largest tour of Shakespeare in American history.

On tour to schools, libraries and more…..

Follow us to a magical land, where fairies and puppets and dreamers tell the story of King Oberon, Queen Titania, Puck the Prankster and all of the mischief they can stir up in the woods one summer night. This show is appropriate for all grade levels and ages. Each performance is followed by a Talkback with the actors.

There is plenty of time to book our 37th annual touring show for your school, community center, library, or any venue! Contact Paula for more information.

For more information, or to book a performance, please contact BTE’s School Programs Director Paula Henry at [email protected] or (570) 458-4075.

Theatre in the Classroom (TIC)

It serves as a tool for curriculum enhancement and a unique opportunity for students to discover the world from other perspectives.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream follows in BTE’s tradition of bringing quality theatre to young people and developing and vitalizing their imagination by involving them, through active participation in the theatrical arts.  Show are presented by actors in an animated story-theatre style followed by a lively post-performance discussion.  For schools, a comprehensive Study Guide provided prior to the schedule performance enables educators to maximize the educational value of the theatre experience by providing discussion ideas, related classroom activities, post-performance questions and bibliography.  The study Guide is provided to educators as a download from BTE’s website.

GHOST OF THE BAYOU

Witness the rare white alligator in Ghost of the Bayou, a special exhibit at Clyde Peeling’s Reptiland!

Legend has it that people who gaze into the eyes of these mysterious creatures will be blessed with good fortune. We can’t say for sure if that’s true, but we invite you to come see for yourself!

Snowflake, the white alligator visiting this summer, is an albino alligator. He lacks the pigment melanin, making his skin a whitish-ivory color. Even though Snowflake doesn’t look like our other gators, he is the same species—an American alligator.

Because they do not blend in with their surroundings, albinos can be quickly spotted and eaten by predators. That is why white alligators are extremely rare in the wild and are mostly found in zoos, alligator farms, and nature preserves. Biologists estimate that there are only about 100 white alligators in the world!

Visit May 22—September 7, 2015 and see Ghost of the Bayou before it disappears!

BUTTERFLIES

clyde peelingExperience hundreds of butterflies in flight as you walk through our native butterfly greenhouse. Almost everyone appreciates the beauty of butterflies, but how much do you really know about them? Did you know that butterflies can’t hear? Like snakes, they sense vibrations through the surfaces they touch. Did you know butterflies are found everywhere but Antarctica; they taste with their feet; and some, like the Monarch, can migrate up to 2,000 miles? Visit us April 25 through November 1, 2015 to see different species and learn all about these winged creatures.
