Production Description

Seeking Miami performers to read to children as part of the SAG Foundation's BookPALS program (www.bookpals.net).

BookPALS notes, "Here's a dream gig for every performer: a role without an audition, a permanent engagement, a full and enthusiastic audience for every performance. The remuneration isn’t monetary, but it is immeasurable. Join BookPALS: Performing Artists for Literacy in Schools, a community of actors, performers, educators, and community members who volunteer to read aloud to elementary school kids who need it most. Children need to experience the magic of books and stories to develop the love of reading and learning that is key to success in school and beyond. Who better to make that magic come alive than YOU? We need your talent in our schools!"

Performance dates are ongoing and take place during the school-year calendar in Florida (from Tallahassee to Miami).
