Springboard to Learning will celebrate the work of Dewey Elementary fifth-grade students at the 22nd annual WiseWrite Festival at Repertory Theater at 10 am on Tuesday, April 3.
Under the direction of of Springboard to Learning teaching partners, WiseWrite students create a one-act play script over the course of a 26-week program. A select grouping of the plays submitted will be brought to life on stage at the Repertory Theater by professional performers.
The WiseWrite program introduces students to theatrical elements of dramatic conflict, obstacles, cause and effect, and character arc, while enhancing the students’ ability to communicate through written and spoken word. This year’s program included 68 students from Dewey Elementary School. Tuesday’s event is free and open to the public.
