Well Stars reach out

Two stars of the Huntington Theatre Company's production of "Well" Mary Pat Gleason (l.) and Lisa Kron ( r.) visited with students at the Lilla G. Frederick Pilot Middle School as part of the Huntington's "First Act" program. Gleason and Kron talked about their acting careers and the play "Well" (which the students went to see the next day). They also watched and critiqued as Frederick students recreated scenes from "Well."

"First Act" brings teaching artists into schools across the region, to prepare students for their visits to the Huntington's student matinee program. The Frederick School, formerly New Boston Pilot Middle School, serves approximately 660 students in grades 6 through 8, approximately one-quarter of whom are students with disabilities.

Community outreach is an important part of the work we do. What kinds of outreach would you like to see us do more of?
