For the 5th consecutive year, the Deerfield River Watershed Association has asked Shelburne Falls’ Piti Theatre Company to create an original performance for Riverfest in Shelburne Falls. This year, Piti’s Artistic Directors are extending the invitation to ages 6 and up (including adults) who would like to be the dancers and movers in their dance-music-poetry celebration of the Deerfield River titled “A River to the Sea” after this year’s Riverfest theme. Ages 4 and 5 are welcome if accompanied by an adult. The performance will be at 1:15 pm on Saturday, July 8th at Memorial Hall, Shelburne Falls.
The minimum commitment to dance in the show is attending one rehearsal. The choices are:
Buckland-Shelburne Elementary School in Shelburne Falls, Thursday June 6th from 6 – 7:30 pm
Memorial Hall, Shelburne Falls, Saturday June 8th from 11:15 – noon. This is the day of the performance. Participants can come back to Memorial Hall immediately after the parade at 1:00 for the 1:15 performance start. Please wear blue and green clothing.
It is possible to just show up, but helpful for us to have a sense of the numbers. To let us know you plan to attend, email jonathan”at”ptco.org or call (413) 625-6569
Dancers ages 10 and up (including adults) with some dance experience are invited to contact us if they would like to be more involved in the performance
