Each of the annual summer reading programs at the Knox County Public Library has a theme. This year’s is Oceans of Possibilities. Following that theme, there’s a special performance entitled Camp Ocean to be offered twice, at 2 and 6 p.m. on Monday at the Fortnightly, 421 N. Sixth St. They’re free and open to all.
Traveling Lantern will present the performances. This is a year-round company that’s been performing nationally since 1985. They’ve been educating and entertaining children in public libraries and schools throughout the U.S. They’ve performed at the New York Public Library, New York Public Schools and the National Theater in Washington, D.C. The group wrote and performed the children’s show at Yosemite National Park for 10 years. The theater group’s mission is to bring great stories to children; to draw them into an active theater experience; to excite their minds and tickle their imaginations.
