Julie Taymor, one of theatre's most inventive directors, transforms words on a page into verbal and visual magic using puppets, masks, music and actors. Children learn about the process of creation that shapes theatrical productions and practice creating their own imagery and characters through in-class activities. Behind the Scenes is an exciting and fun exploration for children and adults alike into the world of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, music, dance and theater. Produced & Directed by Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer. Hosted by Penn and Teller.
