Astoria Students’ Plays Performed By Professional Artists 4/14 at 6pm

Each year students from Horace Greeley Intermediate School (IS10) participate in an after school program where they learn to write their own plays.

These young playwrights then see their original works brought to life by professional actors and directors in a evening of staged readings.

The show is free and open to the public.

Come see a fantastic group of actors and directors put their mark on these new plays.

Each young playwright sees their work performed for the very first time while sitting in a big “Writer’s Chair” onstage.

It’s great fun and inspiring to see these kids find a new way to express themselves creatively.
