Once Upon A Time…From The Page To The Stage debuts in Temecula! This new program engages our community by highlighting literature infused with musicality by authors and stories that have transitioned from Books to Broadway. Our goal is to reach young readers through musical theater and dance.
Find out what goes into taking a show from the page to the stage by learning about how James and The Giant Peach by author Roald Dahl grew into a musical on Sunday, August 6, 2017 at 2:00 pm in the Community Room at the Ronald H. Roberts Temecula Public Library (30600 Pauba Road). Please Save The Dates for Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women on Saturday, December 30, 2017, and Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden on Sunday, February 18, 2018.
The Barn Stage Company has partnered with the City of Temecula’s Arts, Culture & Entertainment Division to showcase these free 60-minute programs that are engaging, entertaining, and educational. They will discuss how works of literature from historical novels to comic strips can be turned into musicals, using the theme of reading to stir the imagination. Songs from these musicals will be featured with a pianist and live performances at Temecula’s Library.
These presentations are free and open to the public courtesy of the City of Temecula Arts, Culture & Entertainment Division. For more information, please call (951) 693-8900.
