Bilingual Casey Middle School Show Heads to NYC
Since February, LOCAL and videographer Tim Kaminski (e47films.com) have been working with Casey Middle School on the development of a bilingual, multi media performance about the subjects occupying 8th grade brains-- floods, texting, bachata, Chief Niwot, La Llorona, and slumber parties!
In late April, Pesha, Mare, Megan and 30 Casey students, teachers and parents are heading to New York City to present the show at the at the student-governed YouthCaN World conference!
We've received generous support from Boulder Arts Council, The Millstone Evans Group of Raymond James, Whole Foods, California Pizza Kitchen, Casey's PTA and numerous friends and family members of the students.
But we've still another $3,100 to raise!
Please consider a tax-deductible donation to help get the students get to NYC! (THANK YOU for contemplating it!)
We have also been in residency- via our partnership with Think360 Arts- at Denver's Stedman Elementary and Florida-Pittwaller Elementary, using theater to teach letter recognition and reading. Drop us a line to learn how to get us to your kid's school!
Lab 2015 New Play Festival will begin accepting submissions on May 1.
