BGT 2015 has begun and is now offered in TWO schools!
Thanks to a very generous donation from the Reva & David Logan Foundation, we are thrilled to now be offering our annual Big Green Theater program at TWO different schools in our community: our founding school, PS123 and our new school PS075. We are so gratified and excited to double the program this year, reaching twice as many students, teachers, families, and artists!
BGT 2015 began its after school component at the beginning of January, and the creative juices are already flowing! We’ve welcomed our first guest experts into the classroom to teach our young writers about paleoclimates, soil, and trees. Plus, we headed upstate for a field trip to the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University’s Earth Institute campus in Palisades, NY. It was wonderful to get out of the classroom, and out of the city– to learn in the great outdoors, and to take inspiration for the eco-plays that will be written over the next few months.
SAVE THE DATE: The Big Green Theater performance festival will run April 24-26, 2015
