BaGar Productions Children’s Mask Theatre

BaGar’s Children’s Mask Theatre was developed under a six year grant with the Department of Health, Education and Welfare-Office of Education circa 1975. The grant featured several elements designed to alleviate the vestiges of segregation and discrimination that were present in the state of Texas.  Potent play presentations, teacher training, multi-cultural workshops and community forums were all part of this unique program. The company collaborated with social, religious and educational organizations across the state of Texas. Evaluation sheets were given to participants; their comments and opinions helped to shape the program.  An independent firm was hired to monitor the grant's effectiveness.  Components of this pilot program were later adapted by many organizations throughout the country.  It was a pioneering tool which utilized the arts as a vehicle for cross cultural understanding.

Programs for children do not adequately address various ethnic groups.  We gain valuable knowledge  through the introduction of other cultures, languages and living styles.  When children are exposed to the stories and legends of the world, they gain an understanding of others and begin to accept and appreciate their differences.  This enlightened concept is the foundation of Bagar's Children's Mask Theater.  Our multi-dimensional theater  incorporates all the elements of a culture, offering a profound theatrical experience. 

Indigenous stories and folktales, artistic settings, music and dance, authentic costumes, toys, games and interactive activities - these are the tools used to entertain and educate our audience.  Each show is strongly reinforced with morals and messages that are designed to promote understanding and combat prejudice.  At the end of each show we distribute a cultural treat which compliments the theme and purpose of the production.

These theme productions utilize trained actors and artists, skilled in children's programming.  A hands on approach creates a fertile atmosphere for learning about task resolution, group agreement and self awareness.  This progressive format allows the development of interactive activities that are a natural outgrowth of the story.  Participation in the activities gives students a more concrete understanding of the subject matter.

The Company also offers cultural “Playshops” which is a workshop activity on theatre, art and cultural literacy .
