Super Saturday comes to area schools

Published 10:00 pm Wednesday, February 15, 2017

What does a former camp counselor who studied German and spent 10 years playing college coffeehouses do with his life? Write and sing award-winning children’s music, of course! And area elementary students get to enjoy the results of Roger Day’s experiences as the Children’s Theater Festival presents “Invincible!” as part of this year’s Super Saturday in the Schools.

In this song-filled performance, Day encourages and empowers young superheroes to solve the problem and save the day by using the greatest superpower of all: imagination. He will be performing at Polk County elementary schools and O.P. Earle Elementary in Landrum Feb. 20-22.

Landrum and Polk County Middle School students will also participate in Super Saturday in the Schools in the week before Super Saturday. On March 16 and 17, artist Joshua Grubbs, a Melrose Avenue favorite on Super Saturday, will be demonstrating and teaching the art of caricature to all middle school students.
