Boys & Girls Clubs of NEPA Announces
Collaboration with the Theatre Arts Program

The Boys & Girls Clubs of NEPA proudly announces a new program - The Theatre Arts Program funded by the William G. McGowan Foundation.  This program is a character-building program that uses theater as a medium.  The Theatre Arts Program is a one-of-a-kind partnership between The District Attorney’s Office of Lackawanna County, Scranton Public Theatre (SPT), The Juvenile Justice System and the Boys & Girls Clubs of NEPA.  The program is being offered at the Scranton facility to start.  This joint effort involves creating theatrical works by Club members working with professional artists to create plays that deal with social issues that students will face during their school careers.  What makes this program so great is there literally is something for everyone – whether a member is interested in set design, public relations, acting or scriptwriting – each member should be able to find an interest in this program.  As far as we know there is no such program implemented like this in the state of Pennsylvania.
