Children’s Theater Workshop

January 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Saturday, repeating until April 28, 2018

Eastport Arts Center (EAC), 36 Washington Street
Eastport, ME 04631 United States
+ Google Map

The EAC’s Children’s Theater Workhop staged “The Bubbles, the Beatles, and the BFG” in 2015 and “The Curse of the Mona Lisa” in 2017, receiving in return bouquets of roses, ovations and looks of pained confusion from its adult audiences. No matter! We forge ahead into the unknown, because we are aware that theater is always about risk and certainly never for the faint of heart. A new season is currently underway. All those interested in acting, directing, set design, costume, or backstage roles are urged to join us Saturdays from 10-11:30 am (snacks provided!) at the EAC. Tarah Waters and Jon Calame will co-direct the upcoming project, which is yet to be named. Please do come bask in the glory of underground Bohemian theater with us.

The Sunday Afternoons at the EAC series, a winter offering of informal and interactive programs every Sunday at 3 pm at Eastport Arts Center, will feature local music educator and musician Kris Paprocki on January 21. Historical and traditional music of Downeast Maine will be the focus of Paprocki’s presentation, titled “I Hear Washington County Singing.” In the past working men and women wrote, sang, and recited songs and poems describing their everyday lives. For lumbermen, fisherman, and sailors, singing was a social activity and major pastime. Paprocki has researched extensively to find songs and poems written in Washington County. Singing and playing guitar, fiddle, and button accordion, Paprocki will perform a hymn which comments on the occupation of Eastport by the British, a song written by a poacher in the Machias jail, dance tunes from an Addison fiddler, and poems of coastal life set to music.
