Imagine you’re standing just outside the Stage Door of a theatre for the very first time. You don’t know quite what you’ll find when you open the door and walk in, but you’re eager to find out.
That’s the way I feel, and I hope you do, too, as I welcome you through the Stage Door of the Starborn Revue for the very first time.
As the welcome video told you, I write for kids, as Elizabeth Starborn. I hope that this blog and website, as well as my books (eventually), will help provide a springboard for kids to let their creativity shine, and to become “star-borne” as they discover just what shines inside each one of them.
As the weeks unfold, we’ll be raising the curtain on a myriad of ways to discover and express creativity. I already have an interview lined up for the fall, with a young woman who is part of the permanent company of the Stratford Festival in Stratford, Ontario. There are books eagerly waiting in the wings for their chance to shine (and there will be a giveaway of a newly released book in October). The theatre cats have some fun and games up their paws for later in the year. As the title “Revue” suggests, there will be a bit of everything.
Mewwww? Revue? Purrrrrrhaps we should show them a little bit of a real revue!
Good idea! Take it away, Lady!
There’s a purrrrfectly delightful troupe of kids in New York City, CurtainUp Kids, who learn about stagecraft, singing, dancing and acting, and purrrrform musical revues on a regular basis. Here’s a link to a video of three of the kids asking the musical question “What’s the matter with kids today?” from the musical Bye, Bye, Birdie. There’s nothing wrong with these kids!
Thanks, Lady! And thank you — all of you — for coming through the stage door to begin to explore what the Starborn Revue has to offer. I hope you’ll subscribe (options under the sign “Casting Call” on the far right) and come back every Wednesday!
See you on stage!
I LOVED that video! I find it ironic that kids are singing about kids, uhh… not being their best. Hmm… I enjoyed hearing the kids sing on the video!
Great post Ms. Starborn! 😀
Thanks, Erik! So glad you’ve joined us in The Starborn Revue! I thought that video was funny, too! Interesting choice of song!!!
Wonderful website! I will have to highlight this soon, and hope to share it with the educators in our school system. Raise the curtain, let the show begin!
