While Lyric’s stage has darkened in recent weeks, executive director Michael Baron turned to local actors Matthew Alvin Brown and Emily J. Pace to create a weekly online video series to educate preschool and elementary-aged children. Through their collaboration, Lyric Kids’ Clubhouse was born, and more than a dozen episodes are available on the organization’s social media pages. The series features Professor Matt and his friend Gerti, who each week provide encouragement to young children during these uncertain times. Each episode also features special guest appearances from students, adults and even puppets. Lyric Kids’ Clubhouse Cabaret is a live musical event based on Lyric’s virtual series and features songs, comedy and fun, perfect for the whole family.
“The Clubhouse affords us the opportunity to talk about our feelings in a positive, creative and helpful way. We’ve had so many of our friends tell us how the Clubhouse has helped them through this difficult period,” Brown said. “By remaining active and producing content on a regular basis, we are able to connect with kids, during a time when the connection has been disrupted. For us, it’s been a respite from the noise and bad news of the world, and hopefully, it does a little of that for the kids, too.”
Now, join Professor Matt, Gerti and all their friends as they bring the show LIVE to the Myriad Botanical Gardens Water Stage!
