Agenda Item #7


Title
Recognition of the Cocoa Village Playhouse and the King Center for "1776"

Discussion

On April 21-24, approximately 4,800 eleventh grade students experienced musical theatre combined with living history through the performance of "1776." Produced by the Cocoa Village Playhouse, the shows were staged at the Maxwell C. King Center for the Performing Arts in Melbourne. This production connects many areas of curriculum such as history, government, civics, writing, reading, speech, music, art and drama.

The outstanding support of the Cocoa Village Playhouse Performers as well as the King Center for the Performing Arts made this exceptional opportunity possible.



Recommendation

Recognize the Cocoa Village Playhouse Performers as well as the King Center for the Performing Arts for helping our eleventh grade students experience the arts through the play, "1776."
