We’re really pleased to playing to multiple generations of audience members with THE CHOSEN. It’s such a unique story, the unfolding development of both the Malter and Saunders families. The production has been dedicated to one particular group of students, the class of 2012 from Capital City Public Charter School, and they’ve overwhelmed us with their written responses to the play — their gratitude at being able to speak with the actors after the performance — their appreciation of absorbing both the book and then its adaptation and then to be brought behind the scenes to experience the actors’ process of becoming their characters. It’s been a transformative project for so many of us.
We’ll begin posting some of those wonderful letters (including a very moving note from CCPCS teacher Jill Weiler) and we’ll be reading comments from older students struck by the play and its performance. More to come. Add your own response as well.
