After-School Actors Perform “Fairy Tales on Trial” at the Bath House Underground

Posted on May 24, 2012 in News

The “Bath House Bunch,” the 4th-8th grade students Thriving Minds after-school program, performed their end-of-season performance, Fairy Tales on Trial, Friday, May 25, in the Underground at the Bath House Cultural Center! The audience acted as jury for The Big Bad Wolf, Jack who stole a golden goose, and Humpty Dumpty’s alleged killers.

Each season ends with an original performance. Last year, after learning about puppetry and other performance traditions, they produced a kabuki-style play. With their teachers Kineta Massey, Johnny Sequenzia, and Rebecca Wells, the students have integrated the arts, literature, science, drama and the environment into their after-school activities.

These youngsters have been exposed, more than most adult patrons, to all the art shows in the Bath House galleries. Their art has complemented all the art exhibitions in the Bath House galleries. And they have become careful stewards of the Bath House Cultural Center and the parkland and wildlife habitats around it.

The Thriving Minds After-school program and the Thriving Minds Summer Camp are made possible through a partnership between Big Thought, Inc. and the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs.
