The Growing Stage: The Childrens Theatre Of New Jersey
7 Ledgewood Avenue Netcong, NJ 07857
An original piece commissioned by the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) and the New Jersey Theatre Alliance’s Stage Exchange program, A BETTER PLACE TO BE brings together the immigration journeys of two young women. First that of TGS Founder and Executive Director Stephen L. Fredericks great-grandmother’s voyage to America in the late 1800’s and that of a young Syrian girl coming today. Weaving poetry, music and folktales from each time and place, the play celebrates our similarities and opens the door for a better appreciation for our differences.
