THE CI.ASSIHED"J Children requested to bring laughter back to the Snickerglee Kingdom An ancient Kingdom has forgotten how to laugh and needs help remem- bering some good jokes. Calling all children who love to laugh, tell jokes and draw silly pictures! A kingdom far, far away needs your help! Long Ago, an evil troll cast a spell on the Snickerglee Kingdom and made them forget how to laugh! Sounds pretty sad, huh? On August 10, you will be able to help the sad people in this kingdom remember how to giggle, guffaw and chuckle! Theatre Limina, a company locat- ed in Minneapolis with ties to Madison, will be performing an inter- active, improvisational production for children ages 4 -10. Look for a giant pod on the lawn of the Prairie Arts Center and get ready for fun and excitement! What is a pod, you say? Imagine yourself in a giant bubble and you'll start to get a good idea. Constructed from simple materials (garden plastic and duct tape) and kept inflated with a fan, Pods are enchanted environments where stories come alive and children discover the magic of theatre. Children meet kings and queens who have forgotten how to laugh, poets who have forgotten how to rhyme or a whole assortment of color- ful characters. Often, the children are asked directly by these characters to teach them new things or to remember what they have forgotten. Children learn important lessons while having fun and being creative. In addition to the pod perfor- mances, children are welcome to stay after the performances to meet the actors, try on costumes and learn more about theatre. Theatre Limina will be setting up stations in the Prairie Arts Center that focus on vari- ous aspects of theatre, such as cos- tuming, make-up and set design. Parents and children of all ages are welcome to attend. Performances are Scheduled for 10:00 AM, 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM. Children and parents meet on the lawn of the Prairie Arts Center. Admission is free. For more information contact Dick Hauck of the Lac qui Parle Players at 598-3405 For more Limina contact Constan4 Mobile Aug 5-!
