Playbill of 2013 has been in pre-production for approximately several days now! Basically, if you don’t know what Playbill is, it is a magical show of creative chaos…well, I say chaos pertaining to this year…but Playbill is a play put on by teens your age! And as I was saying before about the creative chaos… this year a large group of teens have written a script of a musical in high school that goes all wrong—thus, I called Playbill for this year a creative chaos. :)  

“I am sitting here, getting a behind the scenes look of the 2013 Playbill. The script writing process is in, well, progress, and I can hear the teens’ heads ticking with much thinking.But enough about what I have say—

There  are a few people that have some spectacular words to sputter out at you—-to inspire you to join and/or watch the playbill show of 2013!”

Robbie: “Kids in school trying to put on a show but face LOTS of challenges. Funny, realistic comedy for high schoolers!”

Gabrielle: “I love playbill…I come for the laughs and good memories. This is one of the highlights of my summer! I wish I had started sooner.”

Rohini: “I joined last year because a friend told me to, and I came back because I wanted to. It is fun and progress is picking up speed. This play is a lot about accepting people for who they are!”

Teens can also pick up a log at any service desk at the Niles Library and log their reads by hand.

You’ll also be entered in our weekly and end-of-the-summer prize drawings. Weekly prizes include gift cards. The grand prize is an iPad Mini. Yes, an iPad Mini….don’t miss out!

Reading is more then reading some words on paper made from a tree. Reading is to be inspired and entering  a world where the impossible becomes possible.
