BLOOMSBURG THEATRE ENSEMBLE 36TH ANNUAL SCHOOL TOUR

THE AMAZING MR. FRANKLIN OR, BEN THERE, DONE THAT!

The Amazing Mr. Franklin is suitable for all ages and will tour to schools, community centers, and libraries across the Commonwealth and beyond.   

The Amazing Mr. Franklin or, Ben There, Done That  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.

Shows are presented by actors in an animated story-theatre style followed by a lively post-performance discussion.

For schools, a comprehensive Study Guide written from the same material as the script, provided prior to the scheduled 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:  www.bte.org

BTE’s TIC program brings innovative theatre into schools, combining the arts and education.  This commitment to arts education for young people is widely acclaimed by both students and educators.

Tours from February 24 through May 16.  Booking dates for the 2014 tour are available.  Teachers, administrators, and parent-teacher organizations should call BTE’s School Programs Director, Paula Henry at 570-458-4075 or e-mail at phenry@bte.org for more information.
