ParkStage Youth History Performance

April 8 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm


ParkStage Youth History Performance

Mondays and Thursdays, April 8 – May 16, 3:30-5pm

ParkStage Youth is a new program for 8-13 year olds to learn and share history through performance.

Students will meet at the Santa Cruz Mission State Historic Park to learn and rehearse an original story of local Santa Cruz history.

They will perform twice outdoors on the lawn at the Mission State Park on the weekend of May 17th. Students will gather to research, rehearse, and perform a short play telling a story from Santa Cruz history. By the end of the process, they should be comfortable understanding the motivations of their historical character, and some of the pressures of life here in the time period. They will also be able to pass this story on in a complex and collaborative manner, by performing the story clearly and honestly together, for audiences in two performances.

This program is free as part of the offerings of California State Parks, but a $20 material fee for set and props is asked per student.
