BUCK SLIP #3
I'm leading another online workshop called "Navigating the Script Maze" on March 27th from 9AM - 11:30AM (PST). These interactive Internet classes have been a lot of fun and an easy way to take the show on the road without having to travel. Find all the info HERE.
My documentary MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS will have an advanced screening in Easton, Pennsylvania (the town where it was shot) at the State Theatre on April 16th at 8:30PM. For those in the eastern PA/western NJ area who might be interested, you can find the info HERE.
Across the USA, high school sports are regularly lavished with funding, publicity and scholarships, while theater departments struggle to put on the school musical hoping for some recognition of their own. It's no different in the sports crazy Lehigh Valley, PA, except for the "Freddy Awards," a live television event that recognizes excellence in local high school musical theater. Illustrating that arts education encourages the same teamwork, camaraderie and confidence as sports, MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS follows three theater troupes on their creative journey to the elaborate award ceremony - the "Super Bowl" of high school musical theater.
MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS is an emotional journey, reminding us why the performing arts must remain vital in the lives of young people. In the face of shrinking budgets, schools and communities must band together to preserve and nurture arts education.
