Earth Day Every Day Fall Tour

Posted: Sep 11, 2017

Earth Day Every Day, written by Eastern Connecticut State University Alumni Deborah Stauffer, is performed by our own cast of characters. Take a trip with Roger Recycle, Penelope Precycle, Elmer Energy, Chadwick Composter, and Scarlet Upcycle as they try to convince the energy inefficient Mr. Gas Guzzler to rethink his ways. By the end, the whole audience will be cheering "Earth Day Every Day!"

eesmarts is an energy efficiency and clean energy learning initiative, funded by the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund. As an Energize Connecticut program, the objective of eesmarts is to facilitate students' understanding of the science, math and technology related to clean, renewable energy and electricity in order to create an energy-efficient ethic among all Connecticut students.

We are thrilled to offer at NO COST to your school a live theatrical production focusing on using energy wisely, designed for elementary school students.

The program - Earth Day Every Day - features a zany cast of characters, who will have your students rolling in the aisles as they are learning about energy efficiency and green energy decisions that will make the world a better place for us all.

To arrange a performance at your school, please download the Performance Request Form and email it to bmarsh@crec.org. Performances will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis, also taking into account geographic location so that our troupe can do 2 performances per day.
