An Incredible New York City Experience For Three Boston Teens

by:  Meg O'Brien at 05/10/2012

This weekend proved to be an incredible experience for our department and for the three young people who represented Boston at the August Wilson Monologue Competition. The pool of 21 competitors was narrowed down to 15 Finalists, including our very own Tyrel Joseph and Reeana Johnson. The national title went to Saidah Wade from the Atlanta competition. 

Though our contestants did not place in the top three, it's clear they were treated as winners all weekend, with top-notch experiences to match.
 
Edcuation and Community Associate Naheem Garcia reports that this weekend was so much more than just a competition. Our students and fellow contestents engaged in intimate conversations with Kenny Leon (director of our production of Stick Fly and Stick Fly on Broadway), saw Clybourne Parkon Broadway, enjoyed long walks through New York City, and experienced a special performance of a scene from Gem of the Ocean performed by Phylicia Rashad and her daughter Condola Rashad (from Broadway's Stick Fly). Guy Davis offered a musical selection, and all competitors had the opportunity to share their talent with an amazing panel of judges; Crystal Dickinsin (currently in Clybourne Park), David Gallo, Jasmine Guy, Lynn Nottage (Ruined, Intimate Apparel), and James A. Williams. Meg Campbell from Codman joined Naheem and Francisca (Tyrel's Mom) in New York on Monday evening to witness our three incredibly talented Boston teenagers perform on the August Wilson Stage on Broadway!
 
Participating in national programs such as the August Wilson Monologue Competition make it easy for us, as theatre educators, to do our job. Tyrel, Reeana, and Halima have had a weekend in New York they won't soon forget. I personally look forward to seeing Tyrel at our Codman/Huntington day tomorrow to hear from him directly about this experience. I am also energized and excited to be leaving on Sunday for a few days in Washington DC, where I will be supporting Stephanie Igharosa (Randolph High School) our 2012 Massachusetts State Champion as she competes for Poetry Out Loud's national title. 
 
More updates to come next week, and don't forget about the Annual Codman Showcase coming up on May 22nd!

  6. The 1950's noticed an explosion of prosperity for the United States Prada replica handbags, and the dresses from that era reflect it. Soon after two decades, the lean years of the depression and the material rationing of the war were in excess of. In 1947, Prada outlet bags sent shockwaves by means of the trend globe with his "New Search" assortment. With its cinched waists and full, voluminous skirts, this fashion set the tone for many years to come. Curvy, hourglass were in!The principal issue that is the same in all of the Hermes outlet online bags is the logo style. The logo of the double F with 1 F upside down is on each a single of the handbags. The Fendi symbol is printed on materials both on the outside of the bag or in the lining. The exclusive emblem can be rubber stamped on the normal leather or on the handles, however the bags all have the Fendi signature emblem that sets them apart from imitators.This season, Gucci in particular has lovely over-the-knee socks - intricately patterned with small ruffles at the prime. They search fantastic. Here's the problem - and I'm going to be very trustworthy, here. As we age, even if we are in terrific shape, there is a softness that sets in. That softness makes more than-the-knee socks a really hard trend trend to pull off.But as years of glorious existence have passed, Fendi incorporated more things below its name. Fendi is no longer fur alone. It now contains scarves and ties for guys, sneakers and handbags for women, and sunglasses, watches, and wallets for the two males and girls-- all breathe nothing at all but air of elegance and cutting-edge vogue beam.The "Lady Dior" designer black handbag is 1 of the most popular styles from Hermes replica handbags. This superbly comprehensive, Lady Dior bag will appeal to the most discerning fashion taste. The bag shell is a pouch form and is crafted in soft, black lambskin leather with a Dior signature stitch pattern. It functions a prolonged, silver-tone chain shoulder strap and silver-tone hardware.The shoulder strap has an eight inch drop. The interior is completely lined. The bag is created in Italy. The dimensions are: 9.5"L x 6.5"H x 3"W.
