Children ages 3 and older, along with their parents are invited to a free performance by ‘Encore, Encore’ from the Georgia Ballet School, May 21, 2011 at 3 p.m. in the Mountain View Regional Library. The mini-musical will be followed with a brief question and answer session and then theater games.
Encore, Encore is an award-winning children’s performing group, ages 7-11, who performs in part, to educate youth on the various aspects of theater. “Encore has served the community for 25 years performing in schools, at the Scottish Rite Hospitals and in senior’s residences. Mountain View Library will be the perfect nurturing place for the children’s stories to come to life right in front of their eyes,” said Barbara Hancock, CEO, founder, and director of Encore, Encore. “This is children performing for children in a safe, loving environment accompanied by their parents.”
Due to the school’s association with The Georgia Ballet professional company, some students also performed in professional productions including, ‘The Nutcracker,’ ‘A Sleepy Hollow Story,’ and ‘The Sleeping Beauty.’
Encore, Encore, Inc. was founded in 1983 as a non-profit organization. Hancock won two Golden Globe nominations for, ‘Best Supporting Actress’ and ‘Most Promising Newcomer’ for her work in ‘Finian’s Rainbow’ with Fred Astaire. She worked at the Alliance Theater School since 1979 and taught theater and dance workshops in California and throughout Georgia.
