The World's A Stage: Advocating Performing Arts for Urban Youth

Help me give my students A Raisin in the Sun Paper Back Script

My Students

Nestled in the vibrant community of South East, Washington DC, 25 fourth and fifth-grade students will discover the complexities and dimensions of the performing arts. These students have the opportunity to arise, speak, and write about their perceptions of growing up in one of the most volatile and impoverished communities in Ward 7 and Ward 8. Their voices and stories will ignite and enlighten the lives of many.

Through a 6 week intensive and interactive program, students will live, breathe, and eat dramatic writing, playwriting, improvisation, theatre etiquette and management, public speaking, and performance while learning the importance of vision, passion, self-awareness, identify, collaboration, and most importantly authenticity and communal advocacy.

Through daily intensive and structured workshops, students will engage and be challenged with complex dramatic play scripts that analyze topics such as race, sexism, ageism, discrimination, equity, privilege, dreams, etc. Students will embark on questioning societal ideas, questioning the art of deception, and project their own thinking through play-writing, custom design, stage design, make-up design, and theatre management.

My Project

25 fourth and fifth-grade students embark on an incredible 6-week intensive and insightful workshop on playwriting and improvisation. Students will be adept with skills and tools to bring their vision to the stage by learning about the structural techniques of developing an intense and complex body of work.

A Raisin in the Sun will be the overarching themed text or playscript students will be delving deep, to learn about major societal issues and themes that juxtapose with the intricacies and struggles students face on a daily basis.

Help support by providing our learners with the paperback copy of A Raisin in the Sun!
