The Little Read: Charlie & the Chocolate Factory Book Group
Your Community Theatre has partnered with area libraries and Ferguson’s Books to host The Little Read: A book group for kids to discuss Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
The ND Humanities Council awarded the GGFCT a grant in order to purchase 130 books that were given away at four sites: GF Public Library, EGF Campbell Library, Ferguson’s Books, and the Fire Hall Theatre. (Some books may still remain. Please contact each site.)
For the next four Sundays, children and adults will gather to discuss and read from the book. On the 4th Sunday, Nov. 5, the Fire Hall will screen Willy Wonka (the Gene Wilder version). All events are free and open to all. However, the Fire Hall seats 108, so best to arrive by 1 pm to get a seat to see the free film screening. Concessions will be available for purchase.
Grades K-6 - A 4-hour workshop when public schools are not in session. This season we celebrate what makes us different. Each workshop begins with a theater game to get to know each other, then we read a story, and break that story down and create a play from it. Parents and siblings are invited to return at 4:50 to see what we've come up with. Light stage make-up, costume pieces, props are used, and the kids get to perform in the charming Fire Hall Theatre.
Cost is $35, and when you sign up for more than one at a time it's just $30 each. Have more than one child in the same family who wants to participate? Additional children pay just $30 each. Were you in our summer acting camp? Take $10 off your first Play Day workshop this season! But you must register a week in advance. We have to have a minimum of 6 children and take no more than 24. So register by downloading form below and mail or drop off at the Fire Hall Theatre. Paid for in part by the North Valley Arts Council and the City of GF, as well as the ND Council on the Arts.
