The Friends of the Library supported "Play in a Day" on Saturday, January 13, at the nearby San Gabriel Mission. The city's "Engage" initiative allowed for the kids to use the theater without any cost to the library, and we covered the refreshments and a partial cost of the teachers. The Library Foundation paid for the rest.
This program was truly a hit. The students put together a really remarkable improvised play in such a short amount of time. The teachers--Whitney Rydbeck, a drama teacher at PCC, and his assistant Amanda--guided 27 teens successfully. About 40 family members came on stage for the performance.
