Old Globe Opens Welcome to Arroyo at Lincoln Performing Arts Center
2010-11-04 · By Editor
Repeating its success of last season, the Old Globe Theatre opens “Welcome to Arroyo” next week as the second year of the theater’s Southeastern San Diego Residency Project kicks off.
The play, which runs at Lincoln Nov. 4-7, gives students and the community the opportunity to see first-rate theater without going to Balboa Park. In addition, the Globe will be holding workshops on campus for students and hip-hop artists all week. They’ll also have a reading of “Emancipated” on Nov. 7 in the school’s Black Box Theater.
In addition to two free student matinees and two weekend public performances of Welcome to Arroyo’s at Lincoln High School Center for the Arts, specially trained Old Globe Teaching Artists will work in the classroom to explore the art and story of the play and its social history. Prior to seeing the performance, Lincoln High School students will explore elements of playwrighting, hip-hop poetry, monologues and scenes using activities and information found in The Old Globe’s Study Guide which is provided to all teachers.
Playwright Kristoffer Diaz, director Jaime Castañeda and members of the cast and creative team will also visit the San Diego School for Creative and Performing Arts to discuss the play and its creation.
We salute this very creative partnership between one of our civic jewels, the Old Globe, and Lincoln High School. For more information and tickets, go to the Old Globe website.
