Pivotal Productions and C.Y.O. Partner for STATEN ISLAND: SUMMER STAGE 2014, Beg. 8/4
Pivotal Productions, the non-profit educational theatre organization on Staten Island, announces its partnership with C.Y.O. Anderson Avenue. The alliance will provide highly educational and affordable summer theatre workshops to the youth of Staten Island: Summer Stage 2014.
The Pivotal Productions model strives to give students meaningful hands on experience in all facets of the broader realm of theatre. Workshops provided by Pivotal allow students to explore the roles within the inner workings of a theatre organization: artistic, technical and administrative.

"We are proud of our partnership with C.Y.O. We look forward to a successful summer session as well as many more successful endeavors in the future, while enriching the community with the performing arts." said Pivotal Production's Managing Director, Chris Sabol.
