Local Youth Invited to Participate In Safe, Fun, Drama Workshop

This year Blixt Locally Grown, a Lincoln, Nebraska theater group that helps young performers create original plays and theatrical programs will lead a theater workshop and performance at Red Cloud Opera House on Saturday, August 15th at 10:00 a.m. They will help school-age children script, rehearse and perform an original play in one day as part of their Theater Re-Imagined workshop. No advance preparation is necessary, but participants should be ready to use their creativity and have a great time!

“We're so excited to bring Becky Boesen back to Red Cloud! Her energy is contagious, and the work that Blixt does with young actors and writers is inspiring!" said education director Tracy Tucker. Boesen has appeared on the Red Cloud stage previously as an actor in What the Wind Taught Me, and as the writer of Catherland. Blixt’s Theater Re-Imagined workshop will take place Saturday, August 15th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Red Cloud Opera House.
