West Virginia Public Theatre is excited to present its first Educational Outreach programs in the Fall of 2017!
CATCH, inspired by real students & J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye was written by professional actress, Ashley Shade. After writing it for over a year, the play was submitted & selected by the International Bullying Prevention Association (IBPA) to be presented at their 2014 Annual Conference in San Diego, CA. It was sponsored by in part by Sprigeo ( www.sprigeo.com), IBPA (www.ibpaworld.org), and the F.A.S.T. Program of Morgan County in West Virginia. This performance was it's west coast premiere, and it was very well received by professionals, parents, and students.
While the above initiative will provide education/arts exposure to an older audience, "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown" will tour to elementary schools and middle schools this Fall.
