I am a children's librarian in Ann Arbor, Michigan who has invited Wild Swan Theater to entertain and teach the children of our community for many years. Every performance is high quality and filled with joy! Traditional tales and classic literature are adapted with care and respect and details to tickle the funny bone of young audience members. I was so impressed with this children's ensemble that I became a board member to help support their work. There is so much thought put into each play that it is always a pleasant surprise and a delightful experience to watch the reactions of the children. Wild Swan is simply a class act!!
I am an elementary teacher in Grand blanc. I had the pleasure of watching a play called "Shipwrecked" dealing with Michigan history at one of our local schools. We combined our 4th-5th graders (and our expenses) to bring the Wild Swan Theater group to our location. They were fabulous! This is the email that I sent to them after the performance... Dear Shipwreck Crew...
Awesome! Fantastic! Brilliant! Kudos to the cast of Shipwrecked.
It positively was the best performance for students in a school that I have ever seen!
the kids were mesmerized...they hardly took a breath. they enjoyed each and
every second of the play and the music!
When we came back (after going to a picnic lunch and playground for three hours)
the kids were so excited to see what was in the Shipwreck box. As they examined
everything, they wanted to do a play! So, they started to do one and then broke into
two groups so they could be creative and give a "play" to each other tomorrow.
Gracias...merci...danke...thanks a million. You taught the students so much is so many different
ways...history, economics, overcoming hardships...how to make scenery, learn lines, be expressive
and create music!
WOW!!! I can't wait to see other Wild Swan plays in the future. Thanks for coming to Grand Blanc!
