Vermont Reads: Brown Girl Dreaming Performance
October 14, 2017
Wilder Club and Library
Northern Stage’s Youth Ensemble Studio (YES) actors present stories in verse alongside excerpts from Jacqueline Woodson’s Brown Girl Dreaming, a powerful book of poetry about her childhood growing up as an African American in the 1960s and 1970s.
This performance is the culmination of a collaboration between the Youth Ensemble Studio and local seniors, who read Brown Girl Dreaming together and discussed themes around childhood, race and family, With mentorship from Dartmouth students and Northern Stage Apprentices, YES actors adapted the seniors’ stories into verse for their performance.
