Home School Day at Liberty Hall
Tuesday, March 28, 2017 at 10:30 am - 2:00 pm
A very special collaboration between Kean Stages and Liberty Hall Museum expressly for our Home School friends. Attend a performance of The Lightning Thief at Kean Stages on the campus of Kean University in the morning, then cross the street to Liberty Hall Museum for an afternoon of exploring the art of handmade books in participating in our Book ‘em program. Bring a bagged lunch and enjoy the grounds of Liberty Hall Museum prior to the afternoon program. The Lightning Thief is a play in which Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school…again. And that’s the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he’s angered a few of them. Zeus’s master lightning bolt has been stolen and Percy is the prime suspect. Afterwards, Liberty Hall’s Book ’em program will have students learn the history of book making and then create a series of handmade books to take home. Using origami techniques, campers will create three different types of books. The books provide the perfect platform for poetry, journaling, art, recipes and countless other uses.
- Program Time: The exciting day gets underway at 10:30 with a performance of The Lightning Thief at Wilkins Theatre on the campus of Kean University. After the performance, cross Morris Avenue and enjoy your bagged lunch in Liberty Hall Museum’s Carriage House before enjoying our Book ‘em program from 12:30 p.m – 2:00 p.m. the museum grounds.
- Program Fee: $18.00 per student, $15.00 per accompanying adult. (Includes tickets to both the play AND Liberty Hall).
