Have you ever wondered why bears hibernate or why winter only lasts for a certain amount of time?
Well, a few kids from the Evergreen Park Recreation Department’s acting class will tell the village Friday in their performance of the kid-friendly play, “Before Bears Slept.”
Join them Friday at 6:30 p.m. at the 3450 W. 97th St. for a special performance.
“I have an enthusiastic group of students,” said Drama teacher Joy Donovan.
Ranging in ages 8 to 13 years old, kids who are in the group during the school year meet once a week at the Hamilton B. Maher Community Center. Donovan begins each seasonal session with theater games and warm-ups “to get a feel for various personalities and abilities,” she said. Later, they audition for parts, then the real work begins.
The troup will put on a performance at 10 a.m. Friday at the community center for the village pre-schoolers. “We did this last year and the little ones loved it, while my students felt like stars,” said Donovan.
