Luna Stage has always held a firm belief that direct exposure to the power of live theatre encourages young people to tap into their own creative expression. These invaluable experiences lead young people to develop a life-long appreciation of the arts, and to better define themselves as individuals within a society.
Luna Stage is currently offering a school-time matinee for:
A New Play by Nikkole Salter
Commissioned by the NJPAC Stage Exchange, a program of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center
When pressure mounts for a high school's Indian mascot to be removed right in the middle of a winning football season, the coach seeks the blessing of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape tribe to keep the school's long time traditions intact. Looking for opportunities for her daughter to be more active in spreading awareness of her heritage, one of the leaders of the Tribe becomes a willing partner. But when traditions clash, everyone involved is left to negotiate how - or if - they can co-exist. Another story ripped from NJ headlines from the author of Lines in the Dust, Indian Head asks us to take a hard, honest look at how we appropriate culture and the ways in which we honor and exploit tradition.
Wednesdays at 10am
February 15th and March 1st, 2017
Appropriate for Middle and High School Students.
Student tickets $10 - Up to four faculty members/chaperones free.
Performance may be followed by a Talkback with artistic staff upon request.
