In “Mumferd’s Safety Tales”, Mumferd learns skills to help him be safe in his home and community, and brings the children along with him on his journey. This program includes two components: a performance, followed by a workshop two weeks later. Program topics are based on preventable dangers to children’s health.
“Mumferd’s Safety Tales” is offered on a limited basis to schools and community groups throughout metro Atlanta. Bookings are offered in two ways:
- Residency program: Long-term residencies are offered to select locations for the school year. Mumferd performances and follow-up workshops are scheduled once a month from August through May. Ten residencies are offered annually on a school-calendar basis; resident partners are chosen from submitted applicants.
- Standard Performance: a limited number of performances are offered to schools and community groups throughout metro Atlanta as available.
Program requirements for all Mumferd’s programming: “Mumferd’s Safety Tales” is best suited for groups of under 30 children. Best for ages 3-7. Please specify age of children attending so program may be set at appropriate age level.
Approximately 10’ x 8’ feet for stage set-up and additional room for the children to sit. (Floor seating preferred.)
Length of performance is approximately 30 minutes; Mumferd and friend will bring in all set materials and props to the classroom; no additional set-up or break-down time is needed.
