Share Your Parenting Stories

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
of 2013
