The Minneapolis-based In the Heart of the Beast Theater (www.hobt.org) and the cast of Moorhead High’s fall musical “Children of Eden” are collaborating to offer puppet theater classes Oct. 19 and 20 from 1-5 p.m. at Bluestem Center for the Arts in Moorhead.
Students will create lively masks, large-scale puppets, and learn the art of movement and performance for puppet and mask theater. Music, singing and dancing will all be integrated into a lively presentation each day for parents.
Youth workshops are open to grades 3-6, and no prior art-making or theater experience is required. Students can participate in one or both days of class. For more information visit http://bluestemcfa.org/bluestem-hosts-in-the-heart-of-the-beast-theater-residency-and-performance.
In the Heart of the Beast Theater will also help create the puppets and masks that will be used in November’s performances of “Children of Eden” at Moorhead High School.
“This is an exceptional opportunity for the theater artists at Moorhead High,” said director Rebecca Meyer-Larson.
