Children’s Theatre presents Holiday Studio Show
African American Children's Theatre - Holiday Studio Show
Milwaukee’s African American Children’s Theatre (AACT) will present a sampling of holiday songs, monologues and “A Very Speedy Christmas Carol” to the public in a studio show at 4:30 pm on Wednesday, December 10, at the Milwaukee Youth Arts Center (MYAC).
The children enrolled in AACT this year include students from the area and classes from O.W. Holmes School. Youth mentors from Milwaukee High School of the Arts assisted instructors and helped the students adapt a version of the traditional Christmas Carol story, where a grumpy Scrooge is visited by ghosts of the past, present and future.
The Studio Show is open to the public. Admission is $5, but donations in any amount will be accepted. AACT will perform in the Sondheim Room at MYAC, 325 W. Walnut Street. For further information, call 414-461-5771, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.aact.us or African American Children’s Theatre on Facebook.
AACT is also conducting sessions at Elm Creative Arts School and Lloyd Barbee Montessori School. The public is invited to visit the classrooms or rehearsals prior to the December 10 event by calling Constance at 414-324-9821 in advance.
The African American Children’s Theatre is now part of an umbrella organization, the Black Arts Think Tank, which includes Ko-Thi Dance Company and Hansberry Sands Theatre Company. More information on this alliance is available at www.aact.us.
