What's Included

Earn a Weathervane fun patch and the Junior Badge, "Playing the Past" at Weathervane Playhouse! Our badge program meets all of the requirements of the Girl Scout Badge and is designed to give Girl Scouts a broad introduction to Theatre as an art form. This program includes an acting workshop, the "Playing the Past" workshop, back stage tour, theatre history, superstitions of the stage and a look at theatrical design for props, set, costumes, makeup, lights and sound. At least one troop leader or parent representative is required to attend with each troop. No fee is applied for adults attending the Badge Program. Weathervane fun patches are provided at the conclusion of the workshop. The "Playing the Past" Badge must be purchased from the Girl Scout Council. Scouts are asked to pack a lunch/dinner for this workshop. If you choose to do so, Scouts have the option to stay for the 7:30 p.m. performance of "The Witch of Blackbird Pond" at a reduced ticket cost of $10 each.
