How many times have you heard the words, “Enjoy it! It goes by so fast?” A new Ithaca based theatre group, The Civic Ensemble, wants to hear your stories!
"Whether you are the mother of a two-year old or the grandfather of a 10 year-old you know you can't stop time. They just keep growing and changing. You also have an abundance of stories to tell. The Civic Ensemble’s first annual community-based play will be developed from the stories of Ithaca area parents. No theatre or acting experience is necessary and everyone welcome."
*Is an opportunity for parents to come together and tell stories about
the childrearing experience from birth to college to grandkids.
* Is a three-phase project that involves storytelling, collaborative play
development and the rehearsal and performance of an original play
open to parents in the Ithaca community.
*Welcomes any parent (meaning parents, foster parents, step-parents, and grandparents.
Anyone who has taken responsibility for raising a child) who is interested in the project whether they
have theatre experience or not!
*Will be performed at the Kitchen Theatre Company in the Spring
