Second Stage Presents: Opposable Plays

525
Lindsay Schapiro ’14 invites you to come get fingered:

Fingers– what exactly are they?– how did they become that shape?– when did we as humans start using them in a sexual capacity?– why do they shake when you hold them out?– why do we crack them and they make a booming sound?– why do we put a circular object on one of them to show others that we are taken?

These are some questions explored through a collaborative theatrical event this week.

That Group That Reads To Children Info Session

  Dale Glasspiegel ’13 writes in:

This is: That Group That Reads To Children (and does a lot of other cool stuff too!)! On a weekly basis (or more), you can go into preschools and read to a classroom of students for 10-15 minutes, and then spend the rest of the time free-playing, making crafts, playing outside, playing music, giving more individualized lessons, helping out the teachers, etc.

There are 7 preschools within walking distance that we will volunteer at: Head Start, Preschool Town and Country, Even Start, the 2 Neighborhood Preschools, Christ Lutheran, and St. Mary’s.
