BWW Interview: MSMT's MAGIC TIME Draws Capacity Crowds
by Carla Maria Verdino-Sllwold - Feb 26, 2017

“Are you ready for some fun and fairytales? We're going to need you to use your imaginations to help us.” The preschoolers in the front rows giggle and squeal in anticipation. Maine State Music Theatre's Artistic Director, Curt Dale Clark knows how to energize young audiences, and he clearly relishes the opportunity top perform for this morning crowd of over 160 ranging in age from several months to grandparents who have come to hear the special program of story and song, MAGIC TIME at Brunswick, Maine's Curtis Memorial Library. The two free forty-minute interactive programs, which featured readings, video, and live performances of the Robin and Clark musical versions of Sleeping Beauty and Alice in Wonderland, were created by MSMT in partnership with the Curtis Memorial Library with the help of a generous gift from the Maine Humanities Council and drew almost 300 people for both sessions. The idea, born of MSMT's desire to expand its outreach efforts, nurture young audiences, and draw a new diverse public to live theatre, began as a successful mini-grant proposal to Maine Humanities Council and by virtue of the enthusiasm of the MSMT and CML staffs and the community response mushroomed into something of a maxi event with lines cued up and out the library doors before the start of each show.

BWW Review: NCTC's BRIGHT HALF LIFE is Sweet but Lacks Engaging Characters
by Jay Irwin - Feb 20, 2017

The theater is filled with some of the greatest love stories, "Romeo and Juliet", "Mary's Wedding", and "Falsettos" just to name a few of my favorites. But in order to engage an audience in a love story you need to give them a reason to invest in the relationship whether that's through a specific circumstance or interesting characters. Unfortunately New Century Theatre Company's current production of "Bright Half Life" has neither of those. What it has is two average people going through moments in their relationship utilizing a storytelling device that I've seen done better and what results is a love story that's about as engaging as reading a collection of a vague acquaintance's Facebook posts about their love life.

Franklin Lakes Preschoolers Raise Money with Their Art Auction
by BWW News Desk - Feb 20, 2017

Preschool Art Auction Raises $2,500 for Make-A-Wish Foundation. Each month, The Learning Experience in Franklin Lakes teaches their preschoolers about the importance of giving back and what it means to be a good citizen in our local and global community. This month, on February 10th, The Learning Experience Preschool in Franklin Lakes hosted their annual BeCause our Hearts Beat Art Auction, one of their favorite philanthropic events of the year. Tying in Valentine's Day and American Heart Month, their preschoolers created heart art and sold it to benefit Make-A-Wish, a charity dedicated to the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, to enrich their experience with hope, strength and joy. Parents visited the auction to purchase their child's art and made a donation. The Children were so excited to show off their masterpieces and they were very happy to be helping sick children with all the donations. The preschool students raised over $2,500 for Make-A-Wish this year. TLE Franklin Lakes also partnered with local businesses and raise an additional $1,600 in raffle prizes. Local partners include: The Soccer Post, Stop & Shop, White Maple Café, Moxie Ridgewood, Uncle Louie's Pizza, Parian & Sons Jewelry, Kayal Orthopedic Center, Environmental Mechanical Tech, Franklin Lakes Pizza, Hand And Stone Massage, Lisa's Mediterranean Cuisine. All year long TLE works on philanthropy lessons with the help of Grace The Greyhound and Charity Chihuahua, the lovable and hug-gable dog mascots for philanthropy. The philanthropy curriculum at The Learning Experience, helps teach children that it is not how big or small you are, it is the size of your heart that matters. Through animation, classroom activities and participatory songs, Grace and Charity introduce children to topics like the value of helping others, volunteering and donating. Owner Dilek Yesilyurt says of the event, 'It is so important to me to teach our young children both creativity and compassion for others. I feel a huge sense of Happiness and pride knowing that our students, as young as 3, can understand why we must help others and that we are making a positive impact for sick children. We focus so much of early education on academics, which are hugely important, but we must not forget to feed these young children's character development as well. This event is one of my favorite things that we do all year and I love seeing how proud our students are of their artwork and how happy they are they are helping other children.' Nationwide Preschoolers at The Learning Experience Centers raise awareness for children-focused charities nationwide each year, including more than $500,000 for Make-A-Wish Foundation last year. About The Learning Experience The Learning Experience is one of the nation's fastest growing academies of early education for children ages six weeks to five years old. With a greater national emphasis on educational development during the most crucial years of a child's growth, The Learning Experience places a prominent focus on programs that advance scholastic preparation.
