A performance of the show Vote? produced by the Eckerd Theatre Company and focusing on the history of the right to vote in the US, will take place before and after the event as a companion to this discussion.
The conversation will be moderated by Dolores Obuch, a Purchase College faculty member and retired principal of the King Street School in Port Chester.
The PAC’s Arts-in-Education program is committed to offering performances and workshops by world-class artists to enrich, enlighten and inspire thousands of students each year. Performances are made accessible to all students. Audience members gain insight and knowledge in language and visual arts, history, geography, music, theatre, and cultural awareness. Teaching guides allow teachers to integrate the experience into the curriculum.
Performances are selected for specific age groups, from pre-K to grade 12, on the basis of suitability and direct connections to curriculum and Learning Standards. There is always a question and answer session after the performance, and sometimes “Bonus Events,” such as one-hour, in-depth discussions.
