Play Locally: Dome of Doom Dance Off

We're so jazzed to see this!   Collaboraction is one of our all time favs for high quality, edgy shows.   We also try to hit up The Bucktown Arts Fest every year.    This should be an interesting collaboration.    I don't know why they don't mention it in their PR, but the original concept for the Dome of Doom came from another favorite of ours, Chi-Town author James Kennedy who wrote The Order of Odd Fish--highly recommended.  Check out his website here for some unbridled creativity!!

We've featured James Kennedy before in conjunction with the 90 second Newbery Film Festivals that he invented.    Our school has done a 90 second Newbery fest the past two years and hope to continue the tradition.   The kids all make 90 second films based on Newbery winning books.   This year we even dressed up in our Hollywood best and walked the paper roll "red carpet" to the film festival.   It was a hoot.   The kids had such a blast making the movies, they hardly realized how much they were learning.
