Page to Stage Library Outreach Program
Crane River Theater is thrilled to offer our Page to Stage workshop for the tenth year to libraries across Nebraska for their Summer Reading Programs. Encouraging the creativity of our youth is essential. Page to Stage focuses on taking a well-known storybook and bringing it to life with the hopes to inspire imaginations and instill a love for the arts. Allowing children the opportunity to see characters jump from the page to the stage in this hour-long interactive performance is invaluable.
Crane River Theater presents Page to Stage to thousands of youth each summer and is excited to reach out to even more communities in the years to come. We are proud to have been recognized by the Central Nebraska Literacy Council with a “Celebrate Literacy Award”, as well as a Governor’s Arts Award as “Emerging Leaders in the Arts”. Igniting excitement in the arts at such a young age will help to ensure a strong future for arts involvement in the entire community.
For the past ten years, Crane River Theater has traveled to libraries across Nebraska with our “Page to Stage” program. This exciting program was recently recognized by the Central Nebraska Literacy Council with a “Celebrate Literacy Award” as well as a Governor’s Arts Award as “Emerging Leaders in the Arts”.
Encouraging the creativity of our youth is essential. Using nationally-acclaimed actors from Crane River Theater’s upcoming production of The SpongeBob Musical, we quite literally transform the page into a stage in an interactive and engaging hour-long performance. Join SpongeBob, Patrick, Sandy, Squidward, and all your favorite characters as they read, perform, and interact with students in this one-hour workshop. It’s time to dive into Bikini Bottom for an underwater adventure!
The fun does not stop there. Join Crane River Theater in late June as we return to the Cope Amphitheater in Yanney Heritage Park for our production of The SpongeBob Musical. Featuring a large stage and available seating for 2,000 people, this is the perfect location to bring the rich tradition of open-air, outdoor family theater to Central Nebraska.
