At its home base of BYU, Water Sings Blue has brought many smiles to many people’s faces. It’s been privileged to have Kate Coombs join the audience. And it has enjoyed good reviews from Utah Theatre Bloggers. (Of course, if you’d like to see Water Sings Blue at the Margetts Theatre, you have until tomorrow, Saturday, 10 October, to get tickets.)

But there is much more ahead.

This last week, our Water Sings Blue cast began their tour! For the next three months, our cast will perform for thousands of children in Utah, Salt Lake, and Summit counties with a goal “to¬†introduce theatre to children at an early age through performances and workshops, helping them to start a lifelong love of fine arts.” At last count, the BYU Young Company performed for 23,000 children a year!

With each performance, the actors will get to hold an educational workshop with classes. Teachers will also receive, beforehand, supplementary educational packets with core curriculum tie-ins to the show.

It’s a very exciting adventure, and we’ll clue you in on actor responses at the end of it.

Until then, it’s ‘bon voyage!’
