Working with Urban Teens
The State Street Project works with high school students during the school day and after-school to create new works of theatre tailor-made to emphasize the interests and passions of the students as well as the core curriculum standards as dictated by the New Jersey Board of Education. Currently, we are working with the Drama Club at Trenton Central High School to develop new plays by TCH students (written during the creative writing classes) and devised works (created during the after-school hours). Students work alongside professional, adult theatre artists while they learn to write and perform their own work.
