Those at the DCT table this season will discover the key ingredients that go into the development of the greatest masterpiece there is - YOU! Whether you love to cook, make volcanoes, play an instrument, build LEGOs, or another favorite activity, our 2016-2017 season theme of Me, the Recipe represents an awesome exploration into the remarkable making of you.
When considered altogether, the stories we are telling this season present ways for children to understand the many elements that going into growing up. Youngsters along with their friends and family will paint their own mental pictures of the trips, people, and events that build their character and their memories for a lifetime. Join us as we embark on zany adventures with Dr. Seuss; learn right from wrong with Junie B. Jones; encounter new cultures with Tomás and the Library Lady; and celebrate inner beauty with Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters.
When we see live theater, the characters and storylines put audiences in touch with their own memories, thoughts, and ideas in ways nothing else can. As we endeavor to learn new things, our Play in Progress workshops will appeal to all who seek to explore and stretch their creativity, by examining plays in their earliest stages of development. In collaboration with Cara Mia Theatre, we will see the LEGEND OF THE BLUEBONNET come to life. And in a workshop for SCREEN PLAY, we will understand how screens have changed the way we live.
So grab your mixing bowls and your imagination—we'll see you at the theater!
