PROSPECT HIGH: BROOKLYN
January 29th and 30th, 2016 beginning at 8:00 pm
Harding Fine Arts Academy has been chosen
to participate in a unique drama production in
January. The play PROSPECT HIGH: BROOKLYN,
written by Daniel Robert Sullivan and a team of
New York City teenagers, will premiere in 23 high
schools across the country. “Rolling” productions
began for the 2015-’16 academic year in
Indianapolis at the Broad Ripple High School
in September of 2015. HFAA will perform the
production on January 29th & 30th 2016. The rolling
production will end with a performance in New York
City in the spring of 2016.
Conceived by Daniel Robert Sullivan (Tommy
DeVito in Jersey Boys, Author of Places Please!),
Roundabout Theatre Company in New York City
and co-written by a team of New York City
teenagers, the play focuses on four intelligent,
highly charged students and one seriously apathetic
teacher. PROSPECT HIGH: BROOKLYN was created
with the intent of offering a new collection of
serious, true-to-life material for teenage actors. The
play addresses themes of apathy, revenge, deep
friendship, casual racism, self-harm, and the power
of both good and bad advice from teachers, all
against the backdrop of an enormous Brooklyn high
school. PROSPECT HIGH: BROOKLYN was written
to be performed by 5 – 18 actors.
HFAA students who have been picked to participate are: Gregory
Samuel, Aaron Traylor, Esther McMillan, Denzaia
Jeffers, T.J. Powell, Arianna Tull, Ceanie Morales,
Queen Miles, Makayla Grant, Rhea Brown-Bright
and William Day.
PROSPECT HIGH: BROOKLYN contains adult language and situations.
Ticket prices are $5 for Adults, $3 for Senior Citizens / Military and $2 for Students.
