"Hiring 6 teens to be the theater ensemble that creates and performs a children’s play: “The Three Sisters Tale.” (Working Title) This tale is an Iroquois legend that imparts the wisdom of planting corn, beans, and squash (three sisters) together.
We will use living plants as the scenery for this show and grow them starting in May at the Winthrop Harmony Arts Garden in Uptown, Chicago. We will create the play through writing and improvisation.
The play will have 6 performances in the garden where we plant and tour to two other gardens. It will joyfully teach younger children in the audiences about nutrition.
