Mary Tripp Marks School-Time Series 2019-2020
Welcome to the 2019-2020 Mary Tripp Marks School-Time Series! Ignite your students’ imagination with these exciting show offerings: Have You Filled Your Bucket Today? The Musical; Dog Man: The Musical; The Diary of Anne Frank; The Monster Who Ate My Peas; I Have A Dream; Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes: Peter and the Wolf; The Pout-Pout Fish and The Magic School Bus: Lost in the Solar System.
The Clemens Center is proud to be a partner with area educators in providing arts experiences that enrich the lives of young people. Over the years, our audience has grown to include not only regional public and private schools, but also home-schools, pre-schools, individual families and the general public. Since 1979, the Mary Tripp Marks School-Time Series has touched the lives of more than half a million young people with curriculum-related programs. For many of them, this is their first introduction to the Clemens Center and to the magic of live theatre.
This season, younger students will learn about healthy relationships and self-esteem with Have You Filled Your Bucket Today? The Musical, see the value of willpower in The Monster Who Ate My Peas, swim along with The Pout-Pout Fish and blast into outer space with The Magic School Bus: Lost in the Solar System. Upper elementary students will be treated to the humor of a crime-fighting hero in Dog Man: The Musical and be inspired by the life and struggles of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in I Have a Dream. Music lovers of all ages will be introduced to a variety of instruments by the Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes: Peter and the Wolf. Rounding out our season, National Players brings to the stage a compelling self- portrait of a sensitive and insightful young girl, as they present The Diary of Anne Frank.
These programs are made possible in part, through contributions made to the Clemens Center’s Endowment Fund in memory of Mary Tripp Marks and her concern for the cultural enrichment of children.
Exposure to live theater can ignite a child’s imagination in a unique way, opening the door to a greater understanding of the world and a life-long love of the arts.
Filled with background information and student activities, these curriculum-based guides will enhance your students’ performance experience. Study Guides will be available on-line approximately one month prior to each performance.
