This spring twelve area children, aged 8 to 12, will have the opportunity to experience the magic of live theatre as participants in the Rebel Alliance Theatre Children’s Workshop. The kids will work with experienced Rebel actors and staff to learn about memorizing lines, moving across the stage, listening and reacting to other actors, improvisation, and the technical aspects of live theatre. Each child will be assigned an older mentor who will work with them as they learn their lines and develop their character.

The Children’s Workshop will culminate in three performances of Super Potato, a show which has long been a favorite of Rebel Audiences. Super Potato, by Marty Duhatschek, is the story of Jamie, a young girl obsessed with television, and her video game-playing babysitter Teri. Through the intervention of the Lloyd the Bovine, one of the famous Rebel Cows, Jamie and Teri are taken on a magical tour of the FTRC (Fairy Tale Recycling Center). Here they encounter a series of familiar fairy tale characters, who help them to discover the wonderful world of imagination that waits for those who are willing to put down the game controller and turn off the TV.

Children’s Workshop performances will be held April 14, 15, and 16 at Rebel Alliance Theatre and Omro’s Center for the Arts (404 S Webster St).

Super Potato will also be performed on April 28, 29, and 30 (the weekend after Easter) with veteran Rebel Actors in the roles previously performed by their young students.

Attend either weekend of Super Potato (or both) for a rollicking evening of family fun!.
