Creating A Community Bridge
These public dramatizations will be performed at various sites such as schools, libraries, churches and temples, and other public venues. They will enable audiences to view the human experience through the eyes of every age level from seniors to young children and to gain insight into the cultural influences that shape our coping skills. Each performance will include a professionally led audience and cast discussion about the theme of the dramatic presentation.
