News Bulletin from our Friends at EPIC THEATRE...."We Have Won"!!


...the 2009 COMING UP TALLER AWARD presented by the PRESIDENT'S COMMITTEE on the ARTS and the HUMANITIES for our SHAKESPEARE REMIX program. This prestigious award recognizes and supports outstanding after-school arts and humanities programs for children, especially those with great potential, but limited outlets for creative expression.

SHAKESPEARE REMIX is an after-school youth development program at four NYC Public High Schools in Lower Manhattan, Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn, that culminates with students performing alongside professional theatre artists in fully produced Shakespeare productions at Off-Broadway theatres. Remix students accomplish a great feat. They fully debate the critical social and political questions of the play, they decode the meaning of Shakespeare's text and weave their own writing into the fabric of the script. The students work with Epic Artists as mentors and cast mates to rehearse and perform this production, speaking Shakespeare's language with truth and courage while creating a bridge from these plays to their time through their own words and actions.

We want you to come check out why we won. We invite you to see Epic's next two Remixes:
