What: "Glaskoop, the Everything Maker, or How Bear Got His Sharp Teeth and Claws, or Why Loon Still Sings His Sad, Sad, Song"
Where: MacRostie Art Center, Grand Rapids
When: 7:01 p.m. today
This play involves children from the audience, and everyone gets to participate. It provides a creative outlet for youths to collaborate with area community actors.
"Glaskoop" requires six actors to fill the main characters of Glaskoop, Bear, Loon, Frog, Owl and Rabbit, and they will be anyone, male or female, teen-agers or adults. Glaskoop has a magical bag that he uses to "create" animals from the kids in the audience, such as Chipmunk, Blue Jay, etc.
"This is going to be a refreshing, entertaining show for everyone, including the children. We think they will get a real kick out of being able to participate from the audience side," said Mitzie Calgaro, treasurer and chair of the education committee for the Players.
