Children need to read to succeed. Please support Page-to-Stage at The Carson Center (Luther F. Carson Four Rivers Center) through #GivingTuesday on November 27.
“If you don't read, you can't imagine and if you can't imagine, you can't dream.” – Carson Center Patron, Melanie Nunn.
An important key to teaching children is engaging their attention and imagination – and facilitating their wonder, curiosity, and interests. As a nonprofit performing arts center, The Carson Center encourages children to become readers through our Page-to-Stage program – which brings classic books to life on our stage through curriculum-linked stage adaptations.
Your gift will help spark the imaginations of children through an upcoming Page-to-Stage performance in our Class Acts Education Series that tie directly to READING. https://thecarsoncenter.org/educational-programs: A Christmas Carol, Daniel Tiger, Peg + Cat, The Magic School Bus, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Pete the Cat, Magic Treehouse Showtime with Shakespeare, and Penguin Goes to Flight School. The Carson Center serves approximately 25,000 children and youth annually. Many come from schools serving many low to moderate income households.
We all hope reading will become a passion for our students, and the arts can play a significant role in encouraging them to become readers. This #GivingTuesday, help a teacher bring her or his elementary school classroom to The Carson Center for an educational performance based on a book:
$30 for 5 children
$60 for 10 children
$120 for 20 children
$150 for a class of 25 children
$250 for a class of 25 children provides a ticket AND a copy of the book for each child to keep!
