The Children of South Bend
It’s been a fantastic two weeks work shopping our latest original show The Children of South Bend. We perform it for the first time tomorrow night at 5pm in the basement of St. Joe’s Catholic church in downtown South Bend. This cast of 11 girls ages 6-12 has spent two weeks researching their characters (based on historical women), learning new music, tweeking and memorizing lines, and making the show their own. We’ve been inspired by guest artists and field trips and picnics. It has been collaborative, creative and exciting to build. And now, with a three person band (piano, violin and accordion), costumes, and a set, we offer it up in celebration of kids creating musical theatre….and our own SB150. Come on out and celebrate with us. But it won’t be your last chance: we’ve already lined up two more performances this fall! Stay tuned….
