    From Page to Stage: The Watsons Go to Birmingham – A Reader’s Theater Workshop for Children

    The Birmingham Public Library (BPL), in partnership with the Birmingham Children’s Theater (BCT) and Junior League of Birmingham (JLB), would like to invite you to attend From Page to Stage, a Readers’ Theater workshop for children.

    In anticipation of the upcoming BCT performance of The Watsons Go to Birmingham – 1963, BPL will be hosting free workshops at some of its area libraries. Children, aged 7 to 12, will learn how storybook characters come alive through the magic of theater. JLB members will coach the children and introduce them to similar literature located in their local library. Each child will receive two free tickets (one child and one adult ticket) to the BCT The Watsons Go to Birmingham – 1963 production.

    Based upon a deeply moving story in the novel of the same title, the play chronicles a lengthy stay in Birmingham, Alabama, by the Watson family of Flint, Michigan, which coincided with a moment in world history: the bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church. The Christopher Paul Curtis novel was both a Newbery and Coretta Scott King Honor Book, and a New York Times Book Review Best Book.
