Algoma Utilities Sponsors Educational Performances Coming to Local Elementary Schools

Professional actors from the National Theatre for Children (NTC) will visit local elementary schools this February and May to perform “The Treasure Trove of Conservation Cove,” an educational play about energy conservation. In addition, teachers will receive digital games and activities that reinforce important concepts and lessons taught during the 25-minute play. All program costs will be covered by a sponsorship from Algoma Utilities and WPPI Energy, making this a cost-free resource for the schools.

“WPPI Energy and its member utilities have been proud sponsors of NTC productions for over 20 years. These productions teach students about important energy concepts in a way that really stays with them,” said Pete Haack, General Manager, Algoma Utilities.

The pirate-themed play follows the adventures of Captain Doorknob who, while on the hunt for the treasure of Conservation Cove, discovers the evil Pirate Pie-rat is wasting the cove’s resources. With the help of student volunteers and a zany cast of characters, Captain Doorknob learns ways to save natural resources and stop Pirate Pie-rat.

Performances are scheduled for:

  • 10:30 AM, February 7, 2018, at St. Paul’s Lutheran School, 1115 Division St.
  • 2:15 PM, February 8, 2018, at St. Mary Catholic School, 214 Church St.
  • 1:00 PM and 1:45 PM, May 15, 2018, at Algoma Elementary School, 514 Fremont St.
