Depending on one's ambition, time, money and students, how about a
school marionette production of "Sunday in The Park with George". Not
only would students become aware of artists involvement in the theater
on the designing level (sets, costumes, marionettes, programs, posters),
but learn about George Seurat's life at the same time. AND, their
marionettes would have to "act", without actually putting the students
"out there".
