Electric Safety and Conservation Performances Coming to Local Schools
Sturgeon Bay Utilities is sponsoring a touring theater show at local schools to educate young students about energy conservation and electric safety.
This year's performance, "Feeblejuice and the Electrician Magician", is a fast-paced educational program that will be presented to elementary school students. The performance promotes audience participation and presents lessons in a manner that the children enjoy. Produced by the National Theatre for Children (NTC), a Minnesota-based national touring company, the program uses colorful sets and characters in humorous situations to tech students about the concepts and importance of conserving energy and playing it safe around electricity.
In the program, "Jenny Rator," a magician's apprentice to "Dr. Kyle O'Watt," has only 20 minutes to solve two riddles in order to become a full magician. While playing around in Dr. O'Watt's secret library, Jenny accidentally lets loose the troublemaker "Feeblejuice", who gets into all kinds of electrical mischief.
To reinforce the safety and conservation messages, NTC supplies teachers with follow-up educational materials for use in the classroom.
Performances have been scheduled as follows:
The performances are coordinated by Sturgeon Bay's power supplier, Wisconsin Public Power Inc. (WPPI), a power company based in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, that provides electricity and support services to 40 municipal electric utilities in Wisconsin.
