Acclaim for Katrina the Shrew

The Daily Record of New Jer­sey posted 25 pic­tures from last week’s pro­duc­tion of Kat­rina the Shrew. Click here for the pic­tures (the link will open in a new window).

As I men­tioned in a pre­vi­ous post, I wrote most of the music for Kat­rina the Shrew, with book and lyrics writ­ten by Emily Thomp­son Schweer. Emily teaches fourth grade G & T in the East Hanover School Dis­trict, and one of her projects is SALAD — the Stu­dent Actors’ League of Arts and Drama.

I’m pleased to share word that SALAD is an award win­ner this year of the “Promis­ing Prac­tices” pro­gram of the Char­ac­ter Edu­ca­tion Part­ner­ship. The CEP is con­cerned with devel­op­ing good char­ac­ter in schools, and SALAD was cited for its mis­sion of cre­at­ing a school com­mu­nity and inte­grat­ing the cur­ricu­lum. There is more infor­ma­tion at the CEP web­site by click­ing here.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Emily!
