Weekend Kids’ Pick

Must Read

LES kids perform musical as part of Howl Festival this Saturday.

On Saturday at 1pm, local students will perform “Students on Strike” as part of the HOWL Festival. The musical tells the story of a group of Virginia students who walked out of their segregated high school to protest the overcrowded and inferior facilities. During the two-week strike, the  National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) helped them in their struggle for equal educational opportunities. Their case landed in the Supreme Court as part of Brown v. Board of Education, which declared segregation in public education unconstitutional.

The Musical is by Rosie’s Theater Kids (RTKids), which began in 2003 with free arts-in-education programs. They serve the East Village and Lower East Side communities in classrooms at PS 19, PS 64, PS 34, PS 20, PS 142, PS 130, PS 110, PS 15.

The show is at Theatre 80 St. Marks, tickets are $10. Other dates are October 15, 22, 29.
