This spring, Something Collective produced their first interactive theatre show for young audiences. Here’s a short preview!
Captain Creative Saves the Day is an arts advocacy performance that encourages kids not only to appreciate the value of art in community, but to take part and make art themselves! Look how much fun they had!
The show is about 45 minutes including a performance that leads to audience participation and a discussion / Q & A.
Read a review of our show, from Laura Atkinson, one of the Trudeau teachers whose students attended Captain Creative:
This letter of reference is to highly recommend the multimedia production Captain Creative. My extremely high energy grade 4/5 class loved the show. The class was engaged, invited to take part in music, dance and hands on art. It was their favorite “field trip” or experience of the entire 2011/2012 school year. After seeing the production we had many conversations and reflections on the concepts introduced during the story. This work is engaging and relevant to language arts, music, dance and visual arts curriculum. I highly recommend any class seeing the show and hope that we have the opportunity to experience future productions from this wonderful community arts group.
