The Troll

The College of DuPage student theater group will perform an improvised production on Tuesday, July 8 at 6:30 p.m. at the Villa Park Public Library Annex.

The production, entitled “The Troll Booth,” is a script inspired by improvisation, where the Three Billy Goats Gruff collide with Goldie, the Three Bears and the Three Little Pigs. Finding out what fits all three and what it means to grow up is what pays the toll and the mighty troll.

The actors encourage everyone to participate, resulting in a lively “no-shushing” experience for the entire family.

The touring performance is directed by Amelia Barrett.

The event is free, but registration is required. For more information, check out the Villa Park Public Library website at www.vppl.info or call 630-834-1164, ext. 5.

More information is also available at www.AtTheMAC.org.

WANTED: your photos!

Posted May 27, 2014 | Posted in Kids News & Events, Summer Reading

To celebrate our “Paws to Read” summer reading program, we are creating a photo collage poster– and we need your help!  Bring a photo of you reading with an animal to the Youth Services Information Desk, and we will add it to our poster.  Be creative!  Read with your pet or a friend’s pet (dog, fish, cat, hamster, etc.); take a book to a zoo or a pet store; or draw a picture of your favorite real-life (or imagined!) animal and take a picture of yourself with your drawing and your favorite book.  Happy Reading!
