Chicken Dance wows students

Over 1,000 intermediate students from Dew, Fairfield, Teague, and Wortham were entertained last week by ArtsPower National Touring Theatre. The musical production, Chicken Dance, was presented at the Teague High School Theater and sponsored by Trinity Star Arts Council (TSAC). Chicken Dance was written by well-known children’s author, Tammi Sauer and illustrated by Caldecott Award winner, Dan Santat. The colorful story of Marge and Lola portray two barnyard chickens on a mission to win the talent contest prize of two tickets to see the great Elvis Poultry. They face challenges of bullying and must also present a performance that will score higher than a flock of very talented ducks. Prior to the production, TSAC presented copies of Chicken Dance to all libraries in Freestone County and sent a curriculum guide “study buddy” to teachers.
