There’s just something about a pancake, particularly a giant pancake for breakfast. It’s a beacon that somehow sets your day apart. That you needn’t worry too much, because your day is starting with a feast. Like Eric Carle and Jack (this story’s hero), my mother taught me how to make pancakes — step by step, painstakingly going through the process, appreciating the joy in the labor and the tasty result. I’m convinced that this shared act — the cracking of the eggs, the mixing of the batter — brings people closer together. Like theater. So, what a gift to combine these twin powers — pancakes & theater — in a glorious retelling of Eric Carle’s story Pancakes, Pancakes! Speaking of gifts, it’s not every day that one of the country’s leading playwrights decides to take time out of his absurdly busy schedule (he’s a lead writer and producer on “House of Cards”) to adapt a play about pancakes for young audiences. But that’s exactly what Alliance/Kendeda alumnus Ken Lin has done, crafting a beautiful piece of theatre that perfectly captures the joyous process of making pancakes and the unique artistic process of Eric Carle. As someone who had the privilege of growing up with Mr. Carle’s work, I could never overestimate the value of encountering the beauty and simplicity found in his astonishing catalog. I am confident that young people all over the world have Mr. Carle to thank for their first true artistic experience. Once faced with the majesty of Brown Bear or the colors of the Hungry Caterpillar, your sense of wonder is forever expanded, forever open to finding beauty in the unexpected. In the click of a beetle, say, or the making of a pancake. His ability to simply and gracefully tell these stories and render these images so beautifully is the mark of a true master — one whose work requires no prerequisite to appreciate, whose entire catalog is so accessible because it rings so true. It is no wonder that children from Seoul to Tokyo to Rome to Atlanta love his work. Thanks to a fantastic collaboration with the High Museum of Art, we are able to share Mr. Carle’s original artwork and his stories with all of you. Please stay tuned for our fall Theatre for the Very Young show From Head to Toe, inspired by the book of the same name. But now, please enjoy this theatrical feast. After the show, make sure you swing by the High Museum to view its stunning exhibit I See a Story: The Art of Eric Carle. After that, I trust it’ll be time to make a big pancake together!

Flipping for Flapjacks Making Pancakes, Pancakes!: The right ingredients bring Eric Carle’s delightful tale to the stage By Julie Bookman

J

ack wakes up to a rooster’s robust crowing and thinks, “I’d like to have a big pancake for breakfast.” He soon learns, however, that pancakes don’t grow on trees. Or come only from a Bisquick box. Jack’s mother is already up and busy. If Jack wants that pancake, he’ll have to gather the ingredients: flour, egg, butter, milk. But to get the flour, the wheat must be chopped and carted by a donkey to the miller for grinding. The hen must provide an egg. The cow must be milked. The cream atop the milk must be churned into butter. What an ordeal. Is Jack up to the task? Does he have the patience? The stick-to-

itiveness? Does he want that pancake badly enough? Eric Carle’s Pancakes, Pancakes! has delighted lap listeners since 1970. Who’d have imagined that 46 years after it was published, this simple story would become a world premiere family musical, with original songs by Atlanta playwright/composer Phillip DePoy (Edward Foote)? Or that it’d be the second large-scale collaboration between the Alliance Theatre and the High Museum of Art in as many years? As they did a year ago with Mo Willems and Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical, the two are simultaneously showcasing the work of a renowned children’s author-illustrator. While Pancakes,

out of a box. Jack has to work before he can enjoy his meal.” While working with Director of New Projects, Celise Kalke, Moses enlisted playwright Kenneth Lin to turn Pancakes, Pancakes! into something children and their grown-ups would want to see onstage. Lin (Warrior Class, said Saïd), an Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition alum, still writes plays while working on Netflix’s “House of Cards.” He’d never written a children’s play, but he has a soft spot for the Alliance, which helped launch his career. Lin, says Moses, is a brilliant writer. He knew that the playwright, the father of sons ages 3 and 7 months, would do “something incredible with Eric Carle,” something they wouldn’t have initially conceived.

Rooster’s vivid colors are the result of Eric Carle’s artistic process. He fashions illustrations by hand-painting and cutting bright pieces of tissue paper and arranging them on a neutral background.

Pancakes! bubbles at the Alliance, the High features the retrospective I See a Story: The Art of Eric Carle, running through Jan. 8. Pancakes, Pancakes! was chosen by Christopher Moses, the Alliance’s education director and associate artistic director, from dozens of works by Carle, a collage artist now in his mid 80s, and perhaps most famous for 1969’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Moses likes that Pancakes is less well-known than many of Carle’s other books (1967’s Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See; 1977’s The Grouchy Ladybug; and 1984’s The Very Busy Spider, among others). “What I really love is that it teaches everyone about the process of making a meal together,” Moses says. “I think that’s important — to know that a pancake doesn’t just come


Lin says simply, “Seeing how much joy a pancake can bring to a child is a pretty magical thing.” For inspiration Lin visited The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Mass. There he discovered Carle’s process of fashioning illustrations by hand-painting and cutting bright pieces of tissue paper and arranging them on a neutral background. Lin decided he could use Carle’s method in the musical. Playgoers will see characters take shape as pieces of colorful paper. Mother, for example, fashions a beak out of paper and attaches it to Rooster’s mouth. The intent is that the show resemble a picture-book-in-the-making. Of his immersion in Carle’s methods, Lin says, “I came to realize that if a 6-year-old could understand these techniques, then

we should be able to demonstrate them so a theatre audience would also grasp the concepts.” Carle’s work, says Moses, a fan since childhood, is “so moving and beautiful, it stops you cold.” As an arts educator, Moses has seen how deeply the work connects in the classroom. “First, it’s the arresting beauty of the artwork,” he says. “Then there’s the clarity and simplicity of his storytelling. There’s nothing extraneous in any of his stories ever. And they are so inviting. I think that’s what’s so compelling for kids, teachers, for anyone.” Playgoers will be able take part in activities that complement the experience of seeing the show. In other words, the Alliance wants you at the griddle. After all, says Moses, “Who doesn’t love making pancakes together?” A

In Pancakes, Pancakes!, Jack learns that making his favorite breakfast feast requires a lot more work than he imagined. Milking the cow is just one step; the milk must still be churned into butter. A donkey, a mill and a hen are also part of the process.

ERIC CARLE’S VERY OWN PANCAKES,PANCAKES!

Recipe,Recipe!

ERIC CARLE writes: This photograph of me in a chef’s outfit is misleading. I am not a great cook. However, when asked what I would like to be if I were not writing and illustrating books for children, I have expressed my secret wish: to be an executive chef in a large and renowned hotel kitchen. I see myself in a white chef’s outfit, supervising a large and busy staff of hardworking cooks, sampling their roasts and sweet desserts. All right, back to reality! I do know how to prepare a few dishes when called upon. Those who have tasted my pancakes, crêpes really, have spread the rumor that they are devastatingly delicious. When I was a young boy, my mother showed me how to make a pancake. You will need: – 1 cup of flour – 2 eggs, lightly beaten – 1 cup of milk – dash of vanilla extract (optional) – butter – maple syrup or jam 1. Put the flour in a bowl. 2. Slowly add the milk and eggs and stir (avoid lumps). 3. If handy, but not absolutely necessary, add a few drops of vanilla extract. 4. Heat a frying pan.

is bigger, add more batter; if smaller, reduce the amount of batter. The point is that only a thin layer of batter should cover the pan. 7. After a minute or two, using a spatula, flip the pancake onto the other side. 8. After another minute or two, your pancake should be ready. 9. Spread about 2 tablespoons of maple syrup (warmed up) or jam (not warmed) on the pancakes, roll ’em up, and bon appétit! Hint: In the oven, preheat the plates on which the pancakes are to be served. Lukewarm pancakes are yucky.

5. When the frying pan is hot, melt one or two lumps of butter in it. As soon as the butter is melted, add about ¼ cup of batter into the frying pan. 6. Then right away, twist the frying pan so a thin layer of batter covers the entire pan. If the frying pan

He is a writer/producer on the Emmy Award-winning “House of Cards.” ERIC CARLE (Author) Born in Syracuse, N.Y., in 1929, Carle moved with his parents to Germany when he was 6 years old. He was educated there and graduated from the prestigious art school the Akademie der bildenden Künste in Stuttgart. His dream was always to return to America, the land of his happiest childhood memories. In 1952

he arrived back in New York, where he found work as a graphic designer in the promotion department of The New York Times. Later, he was an art director at an advertising agency for many years. Carle’s literary career began in 1967 when respected educator and author Bill Martin Jr. asked Carle to illustrate a story he had written. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? is the result of their collaboration and is still a favorite with children everywhere. Soon Carle was writing his own stories. His first wholly original book was 1, 2, 3 to the Zoo (1968), followed afterward by the celebrated classic The Very Hungry Caterpillar (1969). Carle’s books have been read by millions of children all over the world and have been translated into 62 languages. Today, Carle has illustrated more than 70 books, many of them bestsellers, most of which he also writes. More that 132 million copies of his books have sold worldwide. Carle and his late wife, Barbara Carle, co-founded The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Mass, in 2002.

about the alliance theatre The Alliance Theatre is Atlanta’s national theater, expanding hearts and minds onstage and off. Founded in 1968, the Alliance Theatre is the leading producing theater in the Southeast, reaching more than 165,000 patrons annually. The Alliance delivers powerful programming that challenges adult and youth audiences to think critically and care deeply. Under the leadership of Susan V. Booth, Jennings Hertz Artistic Director, the Alliance Theatre received the Regional Theatre Tony Award® in recognition of sustained excellence in programming, education, and community engagement. Known for its high artistic standards and national role in creating significant theatrical works, the Alliance has premiered more than 95 original productions including Tony Award® winners The Color Purple by Alice Walker, Aida by Elton John and Tim Rice, and Alfred Uhry’s The Last Night of Ballyhoo. The Alliance has developed and premiered important American musicals with a strong track record of Broadway, touring, and subsequent productions, including the world premieres of Sister Act: The Musical, Twyla Tharp’s Come Fly Away, Bring It On: The Musical, Stephen King and John Mellencamp’s Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, Harmony – A New Musical by Barry Manilow and Bruce Sussman, and most recently the world premiere of the new musical Tuck Everlasting. The Alliance also creates and nurtures the careers of artists through the Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition, producing the world premiere for the competition winner as part of the regular season, and the Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab, providing developmental support and production resources for three performing arts projects each year. The Alliance’s dedication to providing access to the arts is reflected in its commitment to creating new work for all ages, and to bringing that work into classrooms and communities across Atlanta and throughout the region. More than 50,000 students each year experience age-specific professional performances and participate in acting classes, drama camps, and in-school initiatives through the Alliance Theatre Acting Program and Education Department. The Alliance’s groundbreaking Kathy and Ken Bernhardt Theatre for the Very Young performances offer professionally-produced, fully interactive theater for infants and toddlers; the Palefsky Collision Project invites high school artists to create and perform new civic-minded theater based on a classic text; and community acting classes and skill-building workshops engage professional artists, young actors, business leaders, and curious learners of all ages. Twice recognized by the U.S. Department of Education for leadership in arts education, the Alliance Arts for Learning Institute equips classroom teachers with theatrical techniques that link directly to school curriculum and have been empirically proven to improve student learning. These programs include Georgia Wolf Trap Early Learning Through the Arts and Dramaturgy K–12, in which students create research material that informs Alliance productions and prepares peer audiences. The work produced by the Alliance allows locally based artists the chance to create on a nationally watched stage, building and sustaining Atlanta’s artistic community. The vision of the Alliance Theatre is to be a beacon of leadership for the national field, while remaining deeply rooted in and reflective of our local Atlanta community. MISSION Atlanta’s national theater, expanding hearts and minds on stage and off. VISION The Alliance will lead the national field by deeply engaging with its local community, modeling radical inclusion and catalytic experiences on our stages, in our classrooms, and throughout Atlanta. alliancetheatre.org or 404.733.4650

Do you appreciate live theatre, enjoy meeting new people and trying new things? If so, then get involved with one of the largest volunteer forces in the arts. The Alliance Theatre volunteer STARS program offers a wide range of opportunities, which includes advocating for live theatre, ushering for Alliance productions, participating in and staffing fundraising & hospitality events, and assisting Alliance staff members with daily office tasks. STARS is composed of four separate organizations working together on fund-saving and fund-raising projects to benefit the theatre. The four volunteer groups are the Alliance Children’s Theatre Guild, Alliance Theatre Guild, the Direct Volunteers and the Usher Corps. For more information on becoming a volunteer, please contact Marjon Wolfe at Marjon.Wolfe@alliancetheatre.org.
