Description

After hearing Ya Girl – a high school student with over 1 million followers on Instagram – struggle to make sense of today’s tumultuous world, Melba Pattillo steps out of history to share the story of her battle to integrate Little Rock Central High School in 1957. Ya Girl learns to see herself in Melba, and in all the young warriors who came before her who raised their hands and made a difference. Inspired by Dr. Melba Pattillo Beals’ Little Rock Nine memoir, Warriors Don’t Cry, this production is a catalyst for deeper discussion about social responsibility, civil discourse, social media, and community engagement.

Grades 6-12

Curriculum Connections: Communication and Language Arts, Music, Technology, Social Studies.

Themes: Empowered Youth, Civil Discourse, Social Justice, Activism, Social Media, Freedom

The Grand’s Stages of Discovery presents multiple opportunities for learning from preschool through 8th grade. Each of our school matinees has been carefully selected to complement curriculum standards. As you plan for the school year, please join us in utilizing the ARTS to help teach literature, history, science, character building, and more. Live theatre helps students grasp and retain the information they may not understand in other terms. In short, learning comes to life on stage! Other opportunities to assist you and your students:

  • Show-specific Study Guides include lessons and activities for use in the classroom
  • Classroom Visits help your students prepare for their trip to the theater
  • DiAE Teaching Artist Residencies allow students to explore subject matter and have a deeper, more personal connection with the art form
  • Valuable Transportation Scholarships make it all more affordable!
