CELEBRATING OUR CULTURES THROUGH THEATRE
In the PTP Partnerships, our team of experienced teaching artists collaborate with 16–18 elementary, middle and high schools, primarily in Upper Manhattan, to provide student-centered, culturally-sustaining, and experiential theatre curricula to approximately 900 K–12 students, many of whom are Multilingual Learners.
Over 15 weekly sessions, students work together with their teaching artist to create a multi-disciplinary theatrical collage that celebrates the cultures represented in the classroom. Through this process, students build their creative capacity, celebrate their culture, and discover the power of community and collaboration through theatre.

WHAT OUR COMMUNITY IS SAYING
This community based organization is perfect for ELL students and families because the organization’s mission has always been to serve and empower immigrant and minority communities as integral, valued and powerful citizens of our city.
Today I am proud to be attending a performing arts high school and intend to use the skills I learned at People’s Theatre Project to advocate for myself and my community, and to inspire others to do the same.
