The cast has been participating in workshops with Teresa Love, an adjunct professor at BYU who teaches theatre for the elementary classroom, storytelling, and adapts many of the TYA plays performed on the BYU stage. (Fun fact: She wrote the script to BYU's most recent mainstage play, The Selfish Giant.) She is currently helping the cast of The Fisherman and His Wife construct a post-show interactive workshop for 3rd graders. These workshops will take place after the students have seen the show performed at their elementary school. In the images below, the cast and stage manager collaborate to first establish, then create frozen images of the play's themes: CONTENTMENT, POSSIBILITIES, DESIRE, UNSATISFIED, REVERSED, HAPPY. Overall Message: BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU FISH FOR! Can you see any of these themes or messages represented in the poses below?
MORE WORKSHOP PICTURES TO COME!
