Kaytek the Wizard is Performed at The Arts at Center Street
Last month, The Arts at Center Street joined with Brian Hull and his team of artists, as well as NAZA (Nashville After Zone Alliance) to bring to The Arts at Center Street an original puppet show arrangement of the 1933 children's story, Kaytek the Wizard, written by Janusz Korczak.
Two showings of Kaytek the Wizard were donated to NAZA as an opportunity for after-school programs to bring their students to an arts event that is beyond the scope of their normal exposure. C.A.S.E. after-school program lead, Craig Duffy, heard about the puppet show and immediately claimed one show for his site location in Old Hickory. After doing so, he reached out to the Arts at Center Street to sponsor the event by donating the use of our facilities, technical director and hospitality staff to put on a show for these kids that they would not soon forget.
Two after-school programs and children from a largely low-income neighborhood were invited to attend. Nearly 100 kids were present to experience the story of Kaytek through beautiful original music, professional acting, and detailed artistry.
