Children's Theater Favorites in Free Performance at Chula Vista Public Library.

Chula Vista Public Library and CYT San Diego have teamed up to offer a fun and free theater experience for residents of all ages. On Sunday, November 3, 2013 from 2 pm to 3 pm, at the Chula Vista Civic Library Branch (365 F Street, Chula Vista, CA 91910), selected scenes from CYT’s productions of Willy Wonka and School House Rock Live! will take the stage. Presented by South County’s CYT, Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka is based on Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971). Classic songs like “Pure Imagination” and favorite characters like honest Charlie Bucket, overindulged Veruca Salt and of course, Oompa-Loompas, gives a whole new generation the chance to get to know the timeless story of the world-famous candy man and his quest to find an heir. Presented by East County’s CYT, School House Rock Live! is the Emmy Award winning 1970s cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math, science and politics through clever, tuneful songs. Come rediscover your favorite tunes like “Conjunction Junction” and “Just a Bill” and sing along to this energetic musical that includes some loveable characters and it all just happens to be educational. Theater Sunday at Chula Vista Public Libraries are part of Chula Vista’s Performing and Visual Arts Fund Grant 2013 awarded to CYT San Diego that helps promote theater arts as a vital part of the City of Chula Vista’s cultural landscape. Performances featuring other classic theater productions like SHREK and Disney’s Little Mermaid will be offered at Chula Vista’s South Branch and Otay Ranch Branch in 2014.  “It’s a great partnership to introduce live theater to families who may otherwise not have an opportunity,” South County’s CYT Parent Organizer Patty Chavez said. “We also hope it encourages more Chula Vista residents to attend their local professional theaters and support Chula Vista art programs.” Discount tickets and a chance to win free tickets to the full productions of Willy Wonka and School House Rock Live! will be offered at the library performance. Willy Wonka will run in Chula Vista from November 8 – 10 and November 15 – 17 at Mater Dei High School Theater  (1615 Mater Dei Drive; Chula Vista, CA 91913). School House Rock Live! will run in El Cajon from November 15 – 17 and November 22 – 24 at Greenfield Middle School (1495 Greenfield Drive, El Cajon) Contact Information: Debbie Taylor Library 619-585-5772 dtaylor@chulavistaca.gov For full details, view this message on the web.
