Evanston play to encapsulate kids

July 16, 2012 by  

A performance of ‘Janet and the Beanstalk’ can be seen this weekend at the Evanston Ecology Center located at 2024 McCormick Road in Evanston, Illinois. This play premiered on July 14 and additional performances will take place each Saturday until August 4, with each performance being held at 10am.

The play, which is a twist on the well-known fable ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ is being performed by the Teen Drama Club Acting Ensemble and is being sponsored and presented by the Fleetwood-Jourdain Theatre. These performances are part of the Mayor’s 2012 Super Summer Activities within the community.

This is the first time that this theatre troop has performed a play for a very young audience. Viewers will travel through a mysterious land filled with adventure and new discoveries. Janet, the main character of this play, will have her talents tested as she moves the audience from scene to scene. This play is appropriate for children over the age of four and adults should also find plenty to enjoy in this magical play.

The Fleetwood-Jourdain Theatre, also known as FJT, is supported by the municipality and features productions that focus on the experience of Blacks. Plays are usually performed at 7:00 pm on Saturdays and 3:00 pm on Sundays at the Noyes Cultural Arts Center.

Admission to this event is free and everyone is invited to attend. Poster printing and flyer printing may have been used to advertise the play to the public. Visit the City of Evanston’s website or call the Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center at 847-448-8254 to find out more.
