Middle schoolers face a tornado of questions every day: What do I wear? What if I wear the wrong thing? What is she wearing? What do I look like? Stop looking at me!
Hoodie examines image and appearance in the vignette style, and poses what may be the most difficult question of all... Do I stay in the clump or do I stand alone?
Join this summer to take part in the production process of staging a play. We'll learn about casting a show, learning lines, character development, and incorprating technical theater using the play Hoodie by Lindsay Price.
