The Rotary Club of Irvine and Rotary District 5320 are partnering up with the Laguna Playhouse as part of its TheatreReach program, which will brings books to life in four Irvine schools.
Kids at the schools are assigned to read "By The Great Horn Spoon!," a book on the California Gold Rush, which the playhouse program will perform for them at the end of the semester.
"Approximately 500 fourth grade students, many who would otherwise not have the opportunity to experience live theatre, will benefit from these performances," Rotary club President Mody Gorsky said in a statement.
TheatreReach reaches out to low income students that are not getting adequate arts education.
