Next Up: LIBERTY! EQUALITY! AND FIREWORKS! by Gregory S. Perrin

Rollins Studio Theatre October 10-19, 2014

Set in a history museum, the play’s characters (a group of 4th grade students) experience key elements of an important part of our national history when iconic images from that period come to life and begin to move and speak.

“Not only does the play, Liberty! Equality! and Fireworks! take the audience back in time to the Civil Rights Movement but it also shows how the issues of injustice are still around today. The play shows tolerance in a way that is relevant to a young student. The students were engaged the entire performance. My students also enjoyed the Pre and Post Activities provided in the study guides. Pollyanna Theatre Company offers a wonderful experience! Thank you!”

HERE COMES GOSLING

“As for “HERE COMES GOSLING”….my husband, a friend of ours and I brought Helena and a friend of hers to see the play. I thought our friend’s daughter would think it was “too baby” for her. I was pleasantly surprised to see our friend’s daughter belly laughing throughout the show. I believe that our older two children would have enjoyed it too. My husband and I were belly laughing as well. Adults and children thoroughly enjoyed it. Helena says, “It was super good!”
