The Great Gatsby (School-Time Matinee) @ Bologna Performing Arts Center

gatsby_30516-1 smallOne of the great cautionary tales about the American Dream, The Great Gatsby is now brought to the stage by Montana Repertory Theatre. This production of Gatsby will convince you that Simon Levy’s masterful adaptation captures, perhaps better than all movies of varying artistic merit, the elusive magic of Fitzgerald’s slim novel. It’s all here: the beautiful people, the decadence, the idealism–and the darkest fate.

A brief Question & Answer session with the cast will follow the performance.

Show Time: 10:00 a.m. (approximately 2 hours in length)

Recommended for 9th – 12th grade

The Adventures of Harold and the Purple Crayon (School-Time Matinee) @ Bologna Performing Arts Center

Harold“One evening, after thinking it over for some time, Harold decided to go for a walk in the moonlight.” So begins Harold and the Purple Crayon, the first of seven delightful picture books by Crockett Johnson, following the zany adventures of an inventive young boy. As it turned out, there wasn’t any moon that night nor was there a path to walk on, so Harold simply drew them- and thus his journey began. Resourceful and brave, Harold creates the world he wants to explore, using nothing more than a big purple crayon and his ‘sky’s the-limit’ imagination. Enchantment Theatre’s production will take your school and family audiences on a wild ride as Harold jets to Mars, joins a circus, and meets a king in an enchanted garden. Using all the elements of its signature style, which combines life-size puppets, masks, magic and music, Enchantment Theatre’s production will delight and amaze audiences, from children starting at Harold’s age, all the way up to grandparents — anyone, in fact, whose heart is young and adventurous.

Show Times: 9:30 & 11:30 a.m. (approximately 65 minutes in length)
