PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: A Center staff member takes students on a behind-the-scenes look at classic literature brought to life on the puppet stage. Students engage in a dialogue with the presenter about Poe’s work and discuss design concepts of the performance to reveal how they were brought to life on the puppet stage. DVD clips of show excerpts, models of the stage design, and puppets from the performance enhance this program. Theme, point-of-view, and other concepts are discussed. Students will view excerpts from one or more of the following scenes: The Tell-Tale Heart, The Raven, The Black Cat, M.S. Found in a Bottle. This is a great arts and literature lesson all in one!
