'Seven Wonders' presents history for students Mona Hill Staff Writer mhill@plumasnews.com The B Street Theater re- cently sent three actors, three interns and a stage/road manager to perform "Seven Wonders of the World: Man, Math and Masonry" for ele- mentary students at Chester. Quincy, Greenville and Por- tola schools Jan. 24 - 26. Taking enormous literary license, the show mixes the basics of seven manmade wonders the Great Wall of China, the Great Pyramid of Giza, Machu Pichu, the Taj Mahal, the Roman Coliseum. Chichen Itza and Petra with myth and history, come- dy and music. According to B Street The- ater's presentation, when Pharaoh Khufu (also known as Cheops in Greek), feels ill from a headache, he calls for a doctor. Enter the Marx Brothers, who inform him he will die (in about 20 years). And so, the Great Pyramid is launched. Or consider Mr. Smart Talker, the Chinese architect who built the Great Wall of China, pIaying on the super- stitions of the official in charge of a fortification pro- ject over one extra brick. Each of the wonders has a similarly comic story: bits of fact mixed with silliness and slapstick. The theater group sent suggested lesson plans to the schools in preparation for their performances. Their Quincy audiences loved it. Lots of laughter greeted the "birth" of Shah Jahan's (ofTaj Mahal fame) many, many children and the pratfalls of Terry Terence Finklebottom, jealous ri- val of Hiram Bingham, who "discovers" Machu Pichu. The B Street Theater got its start with its "Fantasy Tour," containing productions just like "Seven Wonders." The company performs two differ- ent programs at its Sacra- mento headquarters, as well as the road show. Coinciding with Earth Day, April 20, the Shasta Taiko Dance and Drum Troupe will perform for all schools. In ad- dition to providing the as- sembly programs, Plumas Arts' Artists in the Schools program teaches art, dance, ceramics, theater arts and music in the county's elemen- tary schools. The program is funded by Plumas Arts' Art Education Pr6gram, the Plumas County Office of Education, parent groups and the students themselves. For more information about art education or to be- come a children's art enthusi- ast, contact Jane Steidel at Plumas arts at 283-3402 or info@plumasarts.org. Who knew? The Marx Brothers inspired the Great Pyramid of Giza. Well, not exactly, but they did make an appearance in "The Seven Wonders of the World: Man, Math and Mason- ry," a road production of Sacramento's B Street Theater. The performance was prese nt- ed at all county elementary schools last week.
