“Your One Vote?

An Original Play by Intermediate Acting
Inspired by the Elections

A few of us in Jan Mandell’s acting class attended a political action camp that inspired all of us to start talking about politics and the elections. We talked, wrote, researched, and collaborated to create an original performance entitled “Your One Vote?. With the support of teachers, interns, and local visiting artists we created a theater piece that includes acting, singing, film, poetry, and monologues. This work expresses our concern for our future. Please join us!

“If anyone’s looking for hope for America, they should come see this show.? -Audience member

This is really cool! I love it because I graduated from Central High School. This could be a really interesting final project idea...

I've worked with Jan over a couple years, and I know she'd love it!

Plus TPT (public television) is doing a special on this program and I know they (well, we... I'm helping out) would LOVE the footage.

Let me know if you are interested!
