PAIL OF TADPOLES

BOX OF FROGS
Box of Frogs is the Young Actors’ Guild for Playhouse in the Park. This very active group of 9th graders – college students creates part of the backbone of our community theatre. Box of Frogs meets year-round and each session has something exciting and interesting to offer. Whatever a person’s ability or knowledge of theatre, there is a welcome place for you in Box of Frogs. Past activities include writing and producing cabarets, developing and leading drama workshops at a local elementary school, hosting workshops for children, and producing full stage productions. In 2011, the Box of Frogs travelled to Chicago for a theatre field trip. In 2012, they raised funds for a trip to New York City, where they participated in three theatre workshops and saw three Broadway shows!

PAIL OF TADPOLES
Frogs start as tadpoles and so do our theatre kids! Pail of Tadpoles start with classes for 1st - 3rd graders and 4th and 5th graders. These wonderful, wiggly groups meet weekly for 12-week sessions and each session has something exciting and interesting to offer. They have a great time learning the basics of theatre, as well as participating in many age appropriate hands-on theatre activities. The older Tadpoles, 6th – 8th graders, participate in more challenging theatre-related activities. In addition to their acting endeavors, this group will be responsible for the production of a new video series, “Playhouse Presents. . .”, beginning in 2013.

OLD DUFFERS AND POWDER PUFFERS
In 2010, Playhouse in the Park partnered with Murray-Calloway Senior Citizens Center for the creation of a senior citizens theatre troupe, Old Duffers & Powder Puffers. This group continues to thrive. They initially worked with old radio scripts, and have now begun to include other types of material. In November, 2011, the Duffers & Puffers were extremely proud to offer an “Evening of Fun” where they performed radio skits, original material, and humorous skits. Old Duffers & Powder Puffers meet every Monday at 2:00 p.m.
