Literature Alive Project

STAY TUNED! WE WILL BE ANNOUNCING 2017 LITERATURE ALIVE VERY SOON! 



LITERATURE ALIVE PROJECT

Thank you for a very successful 2017 with  "HOW I BECAME A PIRATE: THE MUSICAL!"

We brought 1450 people through the library in just 3 days and gave away 800 books! 

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS: 

Get to the TGC Library early... tickets go very fast. We anticipate every show to be near full or completely full.  Tickets are handed out one hour prior to showtime on a first come first serve basis.

When you get your ticket(s)... DO NOT LEAVE! These are not 
reserved seats! Your ticket assures you entrance, but if you leave and come back right before showtime... ALL the folks in line before you get priority seating. And we start letting overflow in about 15 minutes prior to showtime.  

Tickets are a way for us to know when seating is at capacity, but you are let in according to your place in line. 

We appreciate books being given to early readers and age appropriate JBJ readers.One book per child! Unfortunately, we are not able to give books to kids who are not there ("My grandson is at home." or "My sister isn't here.") Because we want each child in attendance to receive a book.  

THANK YOU! We appreciate your patience... it's worth the wait, we promise!


WHAT IS THE APPROPRIATE AGE FOR THIS MUSICAL?
How I Became a Pirate is approximately 50 minutes and is best for children ages 3 and up.   Of course we welcome all children, but request children under the age of 4 have a parent sitting with them on the floor, or keep them with you in a chair.   

HOW DO I GET TICKETS?  CAN I RESERVE SPACE FOR A GROUP?
Tickets are offered one hour before each production with no presale tickets necessary.  We do not take reservations for groups or schools because we want our production to be available for everyone who comes to the show on the day of the performance.  We've noticed with 'free' seats, reservations are often over booked, or worse... groups do not show up.  When we reserve seats, we must then turn away families at the door who have planned for weeks to attend the shows... many who attend every year.  Thank you for understanding the tradition of "Literature Alive," and participating with us in the joy of bringing free theatre and books to young readers across our community. 

Seating:  We encourage children to gather on the floor directly in front of the stage area.  Chairs are available for parents and older children.   Seating is limited!

GROUPS
We welcome groups, but one person from the group must arrive an hour early to get in line for tickets.  We will give as many as 15 tickets per person in line if they are bringing a group.

ARE THERE BE THEATRE MEMBER BENEFITS?
If you are a current member of Be Theatre, we will be opening our final dress rehearsal for no charge.  You must be a current member of our theatre to attend.  Members are welcome to bring up to 5 guests per membership. More information will go out to specific members when we get closer to the production.
