Upcoming Performance: "Urban Dreams"
Location: Hight School in the Community, 175 Water St., New Haven, Conn.
Date: 6 p.m. Monday, June 18
The Urban Dreams production will address "the everyday issues that teenagers face inside & outside the
classrooms. Through a story of explosive Rap & Hip-Hop lyrics, soulful
singing, live music & spoken word, these teens will confront issues such as
violence, relationships, media, teacher student conflicts, faith and more;
dealing with harsh realities of growing up in environments that feel more like
warzones, these teens strive to re-define Urban Dreams," says director Frank E. Brady.
From the minds of the talented students
of High School In the Community comes “Urban Dreams,” a cutting edge play created by teenagers in New Haven that combines
comedic outlooks, gripping performances and spell binding monologues.
