The word “odyssey” often evokes the image of an adventurous journey. Our CTY journey does not require exploring the world in a physical sense as “odyssey” also refers to an intellectual quest. CTY invites Talent Search participants and their families to participate in our Odyssey Series. This series, designed for students in grades 7-10, strives to introduce students to the extraordinary range of subject areas in the liberal arts.
The typical Odyssey Series programs typically run from approximately 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Please join us for these unique programs specially arranged for CTY students and their families.
CENTERSTAGE • Baltimore, MD
Sunday, December 8, 2013
On the final Christmas Eve of the Civil War, a runaway slave searches for her young daughter; a dying Jewish Union soldier finds comfort in a Christmas carol; and Mary Todd Lincoln shops for a gift that was a rarity in this country, a Christmas tree. Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel weaves these stories and more into A Civil War Christmas, her inspiringly fresh take on history and the holidays. Our exploration of theater will take place at CENTERSTAGE, where Vogel’s play with music is receiving its Baltimore premiere. The morning will begin with talks by former longtime Baltimore Sun theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck, and Ray Sprenkle, an expert on music and the Civil War. This will be followed by a behind-the-scenes tour and a matinee performance. The afternoon concludes with a post-show discussion with members of the CENTERSTAGE artistic team. Lunch voucher is included.
