BGT Hits the Stage!

After a productive tech week, we started our performance run with mid-week matinees for the playwrights and their classmates from PS 239 and PS 75. The plays were a hit! The young writers were thrilled to watch their friends and teachers enjoying their work. We followed up the matinees with Reflection Parties, during which we ate snacks and discussed the playwrights’ experiences of the program. The festival this year was wacky, delightful, and significant. We’re so proud of our students, and inspired by their work. If this year’s BGT is any indication, there is indeed a lot of hope for the future. As one of our playwrights put it: “nature + theater = BOOM!”

Here are a couple of other quotes we took to heart at the Reflection Parties:
“You let us be ourselves. It helps kids express themselves and make a better play.”
“They were laughing, applauding… I think that’s the happiest moment of my life.”
