LessonPLAN (Performing Live Arts Now), the Tower Theatre Foundation’s award-winning series bringing students and families to the theatre and using performing arts to enhance education, continues Friday, March 14 at 7pm with an interactive presentation of Lewis & Clark.
Led by veteran actor Patrick Garner, audience members take on the roles of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, Native American guide Sacagawea, soldiers – even ferocious animals! –to explore the Louisiana Purchase and make their way through the scenic majesty of the Northwest. The two-and-a-half year adventure, complete with breathtaking escapes and chance reunions, speeds by in just 50 minutes, as parents and children learn life-lessons about history, science, character development and teamwork.
Patrick Garner, last seen at the Tower as “Thomas Edison,” was in the Broadway revival of Gypsy with Bernadette Peters, and every version of NBC’s Law & Order. Ten years ago he founded History’s Alive! to help students not merely learn history but learn from history.
