We Support BLACK LIVES MATTER
"Righteousness exalts a nation. Hate just makes people miserable.”
--- Fannie Lou Hamer, 1917-1977, Civil Rights Icon
Theater plays a vital role in society, it affirms universal truths, it provides a mirror to see the truth about ourselves,
and it inspires us to do better.
Since its founding in 1974, The Morningside Players has been recognized for artistic excellence and acknowledged
for promoting community and engaging the richly diverse Morningside Heights neighborhood.
The Morningside Players and The Morningside Gardens Family Activities Committee presented a summer
youth writing project, Page to Stage. The project
culminated with a friends and family reading of works
on December 11, 2021.
Writing Theme: The Pandemic and Me: Teens Write and Explain it All
Neighborhood teens explored various writing styles, including monologue, playwriting, narrative, and poetry.
Our intrepid young writers demonstrated
enhanced storytelling and writing/playwriting skills. The reading provided an outlet to process COVID-19 pandemic stresses and a platform for participants
to be “heard” by the community.
