Barrington Community Theatre will perform Dr. Seuss' The Lorax.
Based on the book by Dr Seuss, the Lorax tells of the dangers of destroying our forests and disposable consumerism. The children hear, from the Once-ler of how he made his fortune at the expense of the environment, and of a strange being called the Lorax who tried, in vain, to warn him. This story teaches children of the importance of environmental conservation and encourages them to take an active part in helping to make a positive impact toward restoring our world.
"UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not." - Dr. Seuss, The Lorax
Free and open to all
Barrington Community Theatre (B.C.T.) is the school-year sister-program of Barrington Enrichment Summer Theatre (B.E.S.T.) camp, established in 2002. In these programs, children as young as 8 years old through seniors in high school, come together to learn about theater and rehearse short plays to perform at the end of each session.
B.C.T./B.E.S.T. prides itself on being a welcoming, inclusive, and nurturing environment - the participants are welcoming and supportive of each other as they learn and grow - at different points along their paths - together. We run our program on the idea that there is something to learn in each part of theatre - and that there is a lot to gain not only from being a lead, but also from playing a supporting role.
B.E.S.T. runs for 6 weeks every summer. During this summer camp, in addition to rehearsing shows to perform at the end of 3 weeks, campers participate in workshops on a variety of subjects and play a myriad of theatre games.
