Little Theater of Wilkes-Barre-SD IPPE Opportunity

This experience would involve presenting health information at the Little Theater of Wilkes-Barre. The information must be relevant to the plot of the current production, which is "West Side Story." This show is a modernized version of Romeo and Juliet. Known for its stunning dancing and symphonic score, "West Side Story" has been nominated for several Tony Awards, made into a film and held several revival performances in New York and beyond. The links to the full show and film on YouTube are included.

If interested, please watch the show and inform Dr. Franko of what topic you would like to present and how it relates to the show. Presentation dates would be September 12, 18, 19 at 8pm and September 13 and 20 at 3pm (arrive 1 hour prior the show time please). You would have to create a poster and corresponding handout to be presented in the lobby of the Little Theater of Wilkes-Barre. You will be permitted to see the show for FREE if you would like. You can earn 3 hours for the preparation (watching the clip/putting everything together) and presentation. This is your chance to be creative and expressive!! 3 slots are open for each show. Contact Dr. Franko at thomas.franko@wilkes.edu if interested.
