KLT created Bring a Book to Life to return the favor to Kernersville Elementary School, where the company has presented its plays for many years.
The theater company chooses a classic tale that can be acted out for youth and adults, then uses the proceeds to donate a hardcover book of the story to every student in the school.
In addition to shows aimed at regular audiences, the entire school population can see the characters they have read come to life on stage in special shows for school time prepared for different ages.
Archie Collins, who plays Watson/Sherlock, and Sarah Cameron, as Eliza Mayhew, are both veterans of several Bring a Book productions.
