Pillbury House teams kids with theater pros

Behind the scenes with Chicago Avenue Project – Video by Flying Pieces Productions and Norah Shapiro from Pillsbury House Theatre on Vimeo.

Tonight and tomorrow night mark the culmination of Pillsbury House Theatre’s annual “Chicago Avenue Project,” in which neighborhood kids get the chance to work with professional playwrights, directors and actors. The theme for this year’s performances is “Over the Top”; joining the kids to help them create and stage their own plays are Christina Baldwin, Tyson Forbes, and Zoe Pappas.

Check out the video to get a sense of the experience, or go see the show for yourself. Performances are free, and cookies and milk are served afterward.
