"Walking the Winds": American Tales, the Kennedy Center Traveling Young Players. Cue Sheet for Students.
Carr, Gail A.; Flynn, Rosalind
Designed to be used before and after attending a performance of "Walking the Winds" (an original musical which dramatizes stories from a variety of ethnic American cultures using local young people as actors), this cue sheet presents information about the performance and suggests activities that can be done with classmates, friends, or family members. After noting that "Walking the Winds" is a story theater performance of flight, journeys, escape, and obstacles encountered and overcome, the cue sheet discusses (and suggests activities related to) props, dialogue, characters, scenery, costumes, pantomime, and audience participation. The cue sheet also discusses what makes a story worth telling or performing, and presents brief descriptions of the seven folktales that make up"Walking the Winds." (RS)
