travels the world to bring the best live children's theatre to video. Filmed
by the BBC, Globalstage productions are introduced by Professor Elizabeth
McNamer and her 12 year old sidekick, Preston who also discuss the play they
attend at its conclusion. Each video comes with an educational pamphlet
outlining important themes of the play, the time it was written, and suggested
relevant activities. Selections include classics such as PINOCCHIO,
FRANKENSTEIN, FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD, and CYRANO. Current productions
such as the childhood story of hearing-impaired percussionist Evelyn Glennie,
PLAYING FROM THE HEART are also taped.
