Comments About Performances
"Thank you again for welcoming us to your wonderful play. The students and teachers had an exquisite time, and the connections our 6th, 7th and 8th graders made to the art of poetry and literacy was truly meaningful. The writing was very accessible to our students ... overall it was very age appropriate in my opinion. I thought having the deportation story in there was compelling and an important one to tell."

"(I liked) the diversity, using poetry to deliver a message and the individual lives. Each charter came out in the poetry." --Teacher
