Teensy Weensy Acting Class: Big Friendly Giants Begins Weds. Jan. 14

Teensy Weensy Acting Class: Big Friendly Giants

What’s Teensy Weensy Acting Class?
A literacy and creative development program for ages 3-5. Over a period of five weeks, young actors dive into a story, processing it with imagination, puppetry, music and dance. At the end of the last class, young actors put on a show for their families. This is an excellent opportunity for preschool-age children to give acting a try, become storytellers, and work as a group.

Big Friendly Giants: Wednesdays, January 14, 21, 28 and February 4 & 11.
Using inspiration from Roald Dahl’s classic children’s tale, The BFG, we will become our own Big Friendly Giants, and act out scenes as if we are very BIG. Caregivers, family, and friends are invited to an 11 am show on February 11th.$75/member, $100/visitor. To register call 828-1234 x231 or stop by the front desk.

Portland Symphony Orchestra’s Conductor Norman

We were thrilled to learn about this beautiful gallery of photos from our friends at the Portland Symphony Orchestra. Photographer Carolyn Nishon was on hand back in February to catch some snaps of the PSO’s Assistant Conductor, or “Conductor Norman,” as he is affectionately known, during his visit to the Museum.

Please take a look at these gorgeous photos and the wonderful practice of these junior conductors! Thank you for the visit, Conductor Norman and the PSO. And, thank you Carolyn, for your work and talents.
