The citizens of Fairview Junction have differing opinions on how to spend the new grant money awarded to their neighborhood. Cyclists are certain that more bike lanes are the right choice; commuters want to see improved bus lines. Actors ages 6-12 explore the challenges and joys of seeking win-win situations while looking for ways that each person’s voice can be heard. Music and dance help illuminate the path, but will our fair city end up ensnarled in a traffic jam of differing opinions?
Neighborhood School is a small, independent school in Jamaica Plain that offers transformative, personalized learning for children representing the ethnic and socioeconomic diversity of Boston’s neighborhoods in an atmosphere of respect and consistent caring. Our biennial school play features every student grades 1-6, and is integrated into the curriculum as important learning in confidence-building and teamwork.
The Jamaica Plain News calendar is open to all local organizations and businesses.
