Theatre Initiatives

AHHAH  partners with local theaters in an effort to make theatre accessible to students and families in Coatesville. For May, we partnered with People's Light  for their production of A Single Shard. This production was the inspired adaptation by the Tony Award Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, Robert Schenkkan, of Linda Sue Park's Newberry Award winning novel. This is a multicultural intergenerational powerful and uplifting coming-of-age story that follows a 12 year old homeless orphan who strives to find a better life. The themes of identity, courage, compassion, perseverance and resiliency resonate powerfully in this story.

Testimonals

Students from South Brandywine Middle School said "A Single Shard was -The Bomb!!!"  

 

 

For many children, this was their first time seeing live theatre. Each student was given a copy of the book and attended an AHHAH workshop afterwards to connect theatre, literacy, and their imaginations.
