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.

JASON MORAN AND THE BANDWAGON (JAZZ)

“Jason Moran [is] shaping up to be the most provocative thinker in current jazz.” Rolling Stone

Since his formidable emergence on the music scene in the late 90s, jazz pianist Jason Moran has proven more than his brilliance as a performer. The Blue Note Records recording artist has established himself as a risk-taker and innovator of new directions for jazz as a whole.

In almost every category that matters – improvisation, composition, group concept, repertoire, technique and experimentation – Moran, and his group the Bandwagon – with bassist Tarus Mateen and drummer Nasheet Waits – have challenged the status quo, and earned the reputation as “the future of jazz.”

In 2010, Moran received a prestigious MacArthur Fellowship, commonly known as the “MacArthur Genius Award” which awards $500,000 to each fellow in the hopes of fostering creativity and future advances in any field. He is on the piano faculty at Manhattan School of Music.
