The Heroes/Los Heroes

by Amanda Davis, Marketing Associate VISTA

Yesterday I got the opportunity to see our TAP in the Classroom show, “Heroes/Los Heroes,” at Wooten Elementary. This show never fails to put a smile on my face every time I see it (which has been 3 times since I started working here at Theatre Action Project in February). This was my first opportunity to see our new Heroes actor, Mitch Bowman, in the program and getting to see the interactions of a mostly Spanish speaking kindergarten class. It was so much fun to see the interactions, the participation and the excitement of the students. They really seemed to love the use of puppets in the show and how animated the characters were.

The picture at the left is of day two of our four day program. This is Mr. Mitch with the puppet Doña Flor and Miss Stephanie as Sam the Salamander in Costa Rica. They are learning the four simple steps to conflict resolution. To learn more about other days of the performance and to listen to the Heroes Music, check out our website. Also check out more pictures of our Heroes Performances and our other TAP in the Classroom programs from over time on our Flickr page.
