Reaching for the Arts Drama Program
Reaching for the Arts provides elementary and middle school students the opportunity to perform in staged productions. Students memorize lines, learn to act and develop characters, and create lighting, costumes, sets, and sound. This program allows students interested in art, stage management, setting design, sound engineering, and theater performance arts to come together as a community to create a show for an audience.
Last year, third through eighth graders at Museum Magnet School PS 191 preformed an adaptation of Romeo & Juliet. Our play was based off of this incredible adapted version of Romeo and Juliet written by Lois Burdett. It made Romeo and Juliet accessible for all kids.
