Green Theatre for Kids
How to reach kids who hate being in class but have a creative streak inside? That's the focus of the Green Kids Inc program, aiming to use theatre to inspire kids to be more environmentally friendly. This years theme is "Happy Birthday" focusing on a scientist and his friends who are striving to put together a green birthday party for their good friend Envirosaurus Rex. Along the way they have to confront what type of environmentally friendly shopping choices they will make, what foods they will choose to buy, and strive to help a toy manufacturer change his over-packaging ways. Schools throughout Canada can engage in the program, which ultimately aims to show kids from elementary through middle schools that even the seemingly small decisions we make every day can really add up when we work together to make the world a better place.
