Syracuse Stage to Perform for 8th Graders on Feb. 28
SKANEATELES, NY (February 16, 2017) – Members of Syracuse Stage will perform before Skaneateles Middle School 8th grade students on Feb. 28, with a performance of “Rosalie Randazzo: Child Garment Worker.”
The performance, which focuses on a fictional character, is a composite based on the true stories of the millions of child laborers and immigrants working in America at the dawn of the 20th century and is a part of the Syracuse Stage Backstory program.
The Backstory program is a live, interactive and creative history lesson for upper elementary students through adults.
Backstory performances invite students to step back in time for an interactive classroom experience with a featured historical character portrayed by a Syracuse Stage artist-in-residence. Bringing historical characters to life, audiences have the unique opportunity to interact with characters following the performance.
Sara Ariello and Lauren Unbekant will present the performance to the 8th grade student body at 8:00 a.m. on Feb. 28 in the Skaneateles Middle School cafeteria.
