I am thrilled to invite you to #Right2Recess, an interactive Theatre for Young Audiences play I created with my company Humanity Play Project. This project has been in the works for one year now – since election 2016. At long last, our show is ready to take the stage as part of the NoHo Fringe Festival.
Theatre can play a vital role in community dialogue, and we hope #Right2Recess give audiences an opportunity to come together and support each other as our nation faces social, economic and political changes. It is essential that our young people – and their grown-ups – practice conversation, reflect on current issues, and participate in hands-on learning as artists, activists, and citizens.
If you cannot attend in person, please consider making a donation to support our mission. Our fundraising goal is $3,000. This will cover basic production costs, festival fees, and artist compensation. Donations of all sizes are welcome and appreciated. Please CLICK HERE to donate.
ABOUT THE SHOW
Third graders at Oak Street Elementary School love to learn AND play. When a new principal comes to town and threatens to take away recess, they decide to take action and fight for their #Right2Recess. Weaving together comedy, puppetry, rap and improv, #Right2Recess will transform the theatre space into a place where young audiences are encouraged to explore what it takes to stand up for something important to them and make their voices heard.
