This July we will be putting on an exciting production of Little Mermaid JR! Because I can't do anything the easy way, ever, I've decided to put a fun twist on the classic Disney show. If you have been in Studio C lately, you may have noticed the large bags of recycling we have been stashing in there. No, Melissa and I have not gone crazy, yet. Instead, we want to highlight the importance of recycling by taking all of the recycling DMR produces and creating costume and set pieces; everything from bottle cap necklaces to plastic bag tutus. We are going to get inventive!
Here is how you, a dedicated DMR enthusiast, can help. I am looking for several items to inspire our costume designer, but have some guidelines to ensure a safe and sanitary show.
BEFORE YOU START DROPPING OF YOUR GARBAGE, please read the following:
We will accept CLEAN recycling only. That means rinsing anything that had food in it previously.
We only want recycling that was used, please do not go out and buy us a bunch of new straws as that defeats the purpose of this project, which is to RE-use and RE-purpose.
Items we are looking for:
Pop tabs from aluminum cans
Plastic grocery bags
2 liter soda bottles
Plastic rings (I know these are rare now, yay, but just in case)
Large plastic containers (laundry detergent size)
The Little Mermaid JR Camp runs July 8-20th. Students 3rd to 12th grade can register here!
