For our monthly Second Saturday children's program in May, UHeights is excited to be hosting The 5th’s Adventure Musical Theatre Touring Company for a special community performance of Northwest Bookshelf. Beforehand, families and the community will get to enjoy a reading of “The Cazuela That the Farm Maiden Stirred” by Samantha Vamos. The reading will be done by the author herself.
When you open a book, you start an adventure! In the musical Northwest Bookshelf, six children visit their school library searching for the perfect book to read. What they discover are shelves filled with books written by authors from the Pacific Northwest. With witty lyrics and enchanting music, each story comes to life in delightfully entertaining musicals. Children will take a musical journey, meeting zany characters, exploring the world from new points of view.
Children will enjoy a live musical theater performance that inspires a love of reading and storytelling. The 2019 production features musical adaptations of new stories, ranging from poignant to wacky, and igniting every child’s imagination. The stories featured in this show include A Normal Turtle by Doug Reynolds, Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea by Ben Clanton, The Cazuela That the Farm Maiden Stirred by Samantha Vamos, Sonya’s Chickens by Phoebe Wahl, and Alaska’s Three Pigs by Arlene Laverde. We selected these children’s stories because their themes—making new friends, navigating relationships, being yourself, and working well with others—will resonate with young audiences. And, approach incorporates fun strategies for encouraging readers, like keeping it fun with mini-plays, introducing a variety of books to peak a child’s interest, and encouraging discussions about books. Northwest Bookshelf is recommended for grades K-6.
