BROOKLYN FREE SCHOOL PERFORMS LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS
Brooklyn Free School (BFS) presents their 6th annual show. This year’s performance, staged at the Greene Hill School, 39 Adelphi Street in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn, will be Little Shop of Horrors, based on the musical by Alan Menken. Showtimes are: Wednesday, February 2 at 1:30 pm, Monday, February 7 and Tuesday, February 8 at 7 pm. Admission is by suggested donation: $20 for adults; $5 for young people.
Directed and adapted by Corinne Goodman, the show will feature a diverse cast of 23 students, ages 5-19 with choreography by Amy Kurzweil, piano accompaniment and arrangement by Aya Kato.
Greene Hill School is an independent elementary and middle school that serves the need of the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill and surrounding Brooklyn communities for affordable and progressive education.
BFS is a grassroots movement formed in the early fall of 2003, offering a true educational alternative to the traditional orthodoxy of education now dominant in most public and private schools in New York City. The community is composed entirely of parents, students, educators and others who believe that freedom and democracy are not just textbook concepts, but a way of living and learning – for our children as well as ourselves. BFS is dedicated to the belief that all students must be free to develop naturally as human beings in a non-coercive educational environment where they are empowered to make decisions affecting their everyday lives and that of their community.
In January 2010, BFS acquired its own building at 372 Clinton Avenue in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn. This 5-story brownstone has helped the school grow in its scope and focus. For more information on this groundbreaking educational option, you can call the school’s director, Alan Berger at 718-499-2707 or visit their website at: http://www.brooklynfreeschool.org
