“We can’t take any credit for our talents. It’s how we use them that counts.” Our Hipp kiddos have been putting their talent to good use this summer as they get ready for their theatrical debut in “A Wrinkle in Time.”
The Hippodrome’s education department is proud to present this beloved adaption of the popular sci-fi novel. Gainesville kids will shine in this special production, demonstrating the theatre skills they’ve developed during their time at our summer camps.
Our campers are learning how to express themselves through the arts and how theatres work — from acting and writing to marketing and set design. Children have such big imaginations, and the Hipp gives them a place to channel their creativity.
“A Wrinkle in Time” follows one of literature’s most enduring young heroines, Meg Murry — braces, stubbornness and all. Once again, Meg joins forces with Mrs. Whatsit, Charles Wallace and Calvin O’Keefe to battle the forces of evil so she can rescue her father, save humanity and find herself. In the end, we know two things for sure: 1. Love CAN overcome evil, and 2. there IS such a thing as a tesseract.
Teen acts are by James Sie, adapted from the novel by Madeleine L’Engle.
Kids’ acts are by Morgan Gould, adapted from the novel by Madeleine L’Engle.
