Artistic Way to Spend Spring Break

TRENTON - Some students at the University of Maine are using their spring break to channel their artistic side.

 

They're traveling to schools across the state to perform a folktale written by Carol Korty, a guest artist at the University.

 

The show is about a young girl who feels like she doesn't fit in, and a witch that lives in a walking house.

 

Korty hopes it's a learning experience for both the audience members and the cast.

 

"For our college students, they see the effect of theater on young children, and notice the difference whether the children are in the early elementary or the upper middle school, " says Korty.

 

The students will also perform the play at the U-Maine campus on
Saturday, March 22nd.
