Crane River Theater Company – Cozad @ Wilson Public Library
Jun 13 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Crane River to Perform on June 13
Crane River Theater Company will visit the Wilson Public Library in Cozad as part of summer reading activities on Thursday, June 13, from 1-2pm with a sampling of their summer musical production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” as part of Crane River’s Page to Stage Initiative. It’s a fun way to spend an afternoon; the public is invited to attend with no charge.
Kids of all ages can relate to the universal appeal of theater. It is for this reason that Crane River Theater created a series of library outreach programs for youth called Page to Stage. Cast members from the summer productions travel to area libraries as part of their summer reading programs with the hopes to inspire imaginations and instill a love for the arts. Allowing children the opportunity to see characters jump from the page of their favorite storybook and the words come to life before their very own eyes is truly invaluable. Crane River Theater is presenting Page to Stage at several area libraries this summer. For more information about Crane River Theater, visit www.cranerivertheater.org.

Check out our website at www.wilsonpubliclibrary.org or our Facebook page at Wilson Public Library.
