CityStage is Charleston Stage’s newest outreach initiative designed to bring Charleston Stage’s enriching theatre education programs beyond the walls of the Dock Street theatre and into the greater community. With the support of Arts, etc., we brought Junie B. Jones is Not a Crook to the 3rd-grade students at Angel Oak Elementary on Wednesday, October 27th. This production was performed outside for 125 students at no cost. The students were very engaged and especially enjoyed meeting the actors after the performance.
Through viewing a CityStage production, students experience first-hand, and sometimes for the first time, the magic of live theatre. Our productions are based on children’s literature or historical events, reinforcing the lessons they learn in the classroom.
