Diversity Program Comes to Cranford Community Center, 3/4
What's it like to be a kid in a new country, a new town, and a new school? When English is not
your first language and you don't know if you will ever see your old friends or extended family again? Are the American students and teachers you meet friends or foes?
Find some answers to these questions on Monday, March 4, 7:30 PM, when The Theater Project offers a free performance of A FEW STEPS IN A STRANGER'S SHOES at the Cranford Community Center, 220 Walnut Street, Cranford, NJ. The performance, part of the New Jersey Theatre Alliance's Stages Festival, is free, but reservations are encouraged: 973 763-4029.
In this presentation, the audience is empowered to problem-solve the complex relationships of immigrant students in American high school settings by interacting with the actor-characters and a facilitator to find solutions. The program was developed in consultation with educators and students, who emphasized that social interaction, student-to-student and student-to-teacher, is often the largest stumbling block facing the foreign-born student.
