Sedgwick Middle School’s Unified Theater (UT) is in full swing preparing for their 9th theatrical season which debuts Nov. 15 and 16.
The public is invited to attend the Unified Theater production of UTube 2012, airing on Thursday, Nov. 15 and Friday, Nov. 16. Both shows are at 5 p.m. in the Segwick Auditorium.
Student leaders, co-directors Joe Celio and Mary Looney, assistant director Grace Andrews, co-producers Jessica Celella and Carly Gorman, assistant producer Owen Hyland, and stage crew co-leaders Maggie Venora and Michael Woods, are busily overseeing the cast of 160 plus members.
All 16 skits are student created, and the show is totally student directed and produced. Faculty advisors, Melissa Lotstein and Denise Brezinski provide assistance as needed.
The mission of Unified Theater is to create and support theatrical troupes equally featuring the talents of individuals with and without special needs. In Unified Theater productions these two populations work side-by-side throughout a student-led theatrical process as equally contributing members.
