In our Fall 2013 season, one of our subscribers was generous enough to donate a number of tickets to the Cristo Rey New York High School.  Students attended four different readings and this was their response:

“It was a wonderful experience and the people were very kind to us. They even asked for our thoughts on the play when it was over.”

“I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart because I truly have a passion for theatre arts and to see a reading of Tennessee Williams by a professional actor made me feel giddy.”

“I’d never seen a read aloud play before and was confused for the first half of it, but as I closed my eyes to focus, I could hear the beauty in it.”

“Without (this experience) we would not be exposed to the dramatic arts in a way where we could see classic pieces juxtaposed with newly created plays.”

“Thank you for the outstanding experience to see two well-defined plays. Although they seemed radically different on first glance, after watching them I noticed the complementary messages of the two plays and it was a sight to behold.”

“I never experienced a small play that would be read and I wasn’t sure I would like it, but the complete opposite happened.  The play was funny and I enjoyed it very much.”

“I really enjoyed how the readers were not necessarily acting but were still speaking as a character.  This experience has motivated me to audition for the spring play at my school.”

“As a drama student I found it very interesting to see the different techniques used in acting.  I was able to learn from them while enjoying the play.”
