The Nextstage at Geva Theatre Center

The Warner School is pleased to be a sponsor of the upcoming run of No Child at the Nextstage at the Geva Theatre Center. No Child, the award-winning one-woman play by Nilaja Sun, shines a light on the struggles and miracles of America’s public schools from 16 perspectives. Starring Reenah Golden and directed by Queen Godls, the show runs from November 12-22, 2009.

The Sunday, November 15, 1:30pm performance of No Child will be hosted by the Warner School, with Warner faculty David Hursh and Ed Brockenbrough serving as discussants after the show. At the conclusion of the discussion, refreshments will be available for the Warner School community in the café. Tickets may be purchased at the Geva site  for $20 each.

Nilaja Sun’s nationally-acclaimed, award-winning one-woman show,
No Child…, stars local teaching artist, poet and actress, Reenah Golden. No Child… is an insightful, hilarious and touching story of sixteen people - diverse students, teachers, a principal, a security guard, a janitor and a teaching artist who comes to work in Malcom X High School in the Bronx for a six-week long play project. No Child… provides a glimpse into a schoolroom where under-achieving students are given the opportunity to achieve through the use of drama. It "shines a light on the struggles – and miracles – of America’s public schools" and proves that one passionate person can still make a difference! This off-Broadway show was a breakaway hit with critics giving it straight A’s.
