JOIN US FOR A KIDS CONTEST!
Heartland Bank and Trust Company and Learning Stage, the education committee of Princeton Theatre Group, are now accepting entries to the kids' contest: "Imagining the Naughty List". This co-sponsored event is being held in conjunction with the upcoming Festival 56 production of an original children's play - The Naughty List - by Laura Brigham. The contest is a fun way to expose kids to some of the activities that are involved in staging a play, and to spur their interest in seeing this particular live production.
The Naughty List tells what happens when one of the elves ends up on the Naughty List. The contest allows kids to imagine, before they've seen the production, the actors, set, plot and script of the play, and to express their ideas in language and/or art.
Entrants will be divided by age groups and given age appropriate challenges.
Contest semi-finalists will be chosen in each of six entry categories, and will receive two tickets to a performance of the show. Heartland Bank will award a Grand Prize, consisting of a $50 savings account, to the entry selected as best across all categories.
Entry booklets are available at the Grace Center box office, 316 S. Main Street in Princeton, at Heartland Bank and Trust, 606 S. Main St. in Princeton, and on-line at www.festival56.com. Entries must be returned to the Grace Center no later than 5PM December 10th.
