We Are Samurai Outreach Show
On October 2nd, Marrow’s Edge was honored and thrilled to welcome The Equity Project (TEP) Charter School for an outreach show of We Are Samurai. For an action-packed hour, the 7th and 8th Graders from Mr. Corey Emerson’s Drama Club raced from space to space, meditated with Elias, mourned with Josephine, and plotted with Rocky and Regan. Their visit was part of The Equity Project’s extended day program, where all students select a teacher-led activity from 3:00-4:00 pm. Along with their after-school learning, field trips are an essential part of their growth and enrichment.
Marrow’s Edge was very excited to welcome these 15 promising young women to the space to see the show and have a quick talk-back discussion both pre and post show. Their energy, spirit, and enthusiasm was unparlleled and it was a great honor to offer our work to them. Of Elias, one student, Yuberly said, “I felt really connected to the super spiritual character. I felt like I could understand her.” The TEP student’s visit energized our team and helped us all remember what joy and exuberance can be found while seeing theater.
