Spring Performing Arts Curricular Series (PACS)
The Dragon Stoorworm
For Children Ages 5-10
Wednesdays, May 5 - June 16
Registration deadline: Friday, April 30
The Dragon Stoorworm was the very first, very worst dragon that ever lived. It was ginormous: almost as big as the whole of Scotland! Many warriors set out to battle the terrible dragon, but they did not return, until… Gentle Assipattle is no warrior but maybe together, he and the King of Scotland’s daughter, Princess Gemdelovely, can free the country from wrath of the Dragon Stoorworm. The Princess Gemdelovely and Assipattle use their cunning and creativity to fight the dragon -- can they save Scotland from the monster?
The traditional Scottish folktale inspires a lively and imaginative retelling from Carnegie-medal winning author Theresa Breslin, with beautiful renderings of Scotland’s landscape from illustrator Matthew Land.
Join Revels as we dive into the exciting tale of the Stoorworm and explore the rich culture and traditions of Scotland. Students will learn about the country’s musical and dance traditions, everything from Highland Dance to the Bagpipes! By the end of 7 weeks, the class will have worked together to write, direct and perform their very own play, based on the tale of the Stoorworm. The class will meet virtually for an hour once a week beginning May 5, and will end the series with a showcase performance. All classes will take place over Zoom.
A complimentary copy of The Dragon Stoorworm will be sent to students.
This class will be taught by Elliot Lazar.
