Press Reviews: DCMetroTheaterArts (Capital Fringe Festival 2015) Greenbelt News Review articles from  June 2013 and December 2014 (as pdf files) New Grants  We just received another grant from the Prince George’s Arts and Humanities Council for our project, “Shadow Stories”, which we will bring to the Greenbelt Elementary School in the fall of 2015. It will fund performances of our new show, Rainbow Crow Brings Daylight as well as in-depth workshops that feature shadow puppetry and the students’ own folk tales. Greenbelt Magnolia Elementary School received an ACE Grant (Greenbelt Advisory Committee on Education) for performances of our show The Hollow Stump, which took place in March 2015. We recently completed our project, “Puppets and Poetry” at GES, made possible by a grant from the Prince George’s Arts and Humanities Council. Artists’ Residency for two years at Greenbelt Elementary  Beech Tree Puppets are coming to the end of a two-year Residency at Greenbelt Elementary School. Over the 2014/15 school year, we have performed three shows, The Giant Turnip, Buttterfly Wonder and The Hollow Stump, and have conducted hands-on workshops in every classroom to support the curriculum.  This included a shadow-puppet project about the Lunar New Year and a student puppet show featuring the students’ own puppets and poetry. This Residency came about at the request of parents, teachers and students. In addition to the grant, it will be funded by the PTA and the Family Art Fund at GES.
