Alliant brings theatre to Pence school


Interstate Power and Light Co., an Alliant Energy company, brought The National Theatre for Children to Pence Elementary School this afternoon.

Pence Elementary School Principal Christopher Welch said, “Our school, as a part of Alliant Energy’s Hometown Rewards program, is making a real effort to reduce our building’s energy use. That involves the students, teachers and the administration working together. The performance of The National Theatre for Children coming to our school is one more way we are getting the kids excited about saving energy.”

During the free show, students learned about energy efficiency, renewable energy and energy conservation with the help of characters like Nikki Neutron, U.R. Fired, Bert the Dirt Expert, Thunderstorm and the devious super villain The Sneaker.

“The community of Fairfield is working with us to save energy through the Hometown Rewards program. We are happy to bring this opportunity to learn about saving energy in a fun and engaging way to the students of Pence Elementary School,” said Robin Sempf, senior product manager of Alliant Energy.

The National Theatre for Children is the largest touring children’s theatre in the world.
