"If there is anything to take away from YOUNG VOICES, it’s that 17 Philadelphia-area Millennials are not ignorant to suffering, to pain, or to what might bring joy, and they’re not afraid to speak out about it. As a fellow Millennial, I was proud to see my generation breaking stereotypes left, right, and center stage. "
The 2015 Young Voices Monologue Festival is sponsored by Knight Foundation, Citizens Bank, Charlotte Cushman Foundation, Connelly Foundation, and Honorary Producers Harvey & Virginia Kimmel
Following extensive school closures in the School District of Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin High School received hundreds of displaced students. Last year, a group of students in Mrs. Lauren Murphy-Sands' class worked with Young Playwrights to write a play about the school environment and about the challenges they face every day. Then, "The Receiving Schools Project" was produced and performed at the 2014 New Voices Productions at Temple Theaters.
On November 12, The Receiving Schools Project was remounted at Benjamin Franklin High School for a group of students, educators, and administrators, including School District of Philadelphia Superintendent, Dr. William Hite.
