December 14, 2014 – La Cenerentola Program

On the Student Outreach performances on Decembers 15, 2014:

“Marie Duffy Grammar School, Wharton, was a success today and the children were well behaved considering K-5, about 500 of them for almost an hour.  There was a group of about 10 autistic children with their aides as well.  You will see by the photos that the costumes and antics of the 2 mean sisters was very appealing to the children.  David Wroe, OAF’s Artistic Director and Conductor of NJ Festival Orchestra, Westfield, spoke, narrated & explained to the children as the show went along.  He really related to the young children by telling them to ‘boo’ the mean stepsisters and father for their treatment of Cinderella.  There were comments to us later of how they liked the program.   This school was chosen by the Education Director, Barbara Reuther, Morris Arts Council, as fulfilling our request for a school in an underserved area.  The Principal, Pamela Blalock, is very supportive of all the arts.  She explained to us today that the school is a microcosm of many nations (Asians, Hispanic, etc.),  some students cannot speak English, must have English as Second Language Teachers as part of her program, many aides assist in the classroom who speak Spanish, etc.  This program was also presented to 2 schools in Newark:  Arts High and JFK School for the Developmentally Disabled.  ” – Joan Del Guidice, Opera at Florham President
