Little Lake Theatre Company, in partnership with Classrooms Without Borders, presents:
LETTERS TO SALA
By. Arlene Hutton
Adapted from the book, Sala’s Gift by Ann Kirschner and based on a true account, Letters To Sala is a remarkable story of a young Jewish girl’s survival during wartime Germany. Over the period of five years, and whilst incarcerated in seven Nazi labor camps, Sala Garncarz Kirschner was able to accumulate and keep hidden over 350 letters she received from family, friends, and neighbors. The performance Letters To Sala documents Sala’s experience during the Holocaust and draws from the emotional journeys that began for both Ann and Sala when the letters are read once again.
Join us on our one month journey to bring this wonderful play to eight area schools and two colleges! Check back weekly for new pictures and letters from the cast.
About our partner- Classrooms Without Borders, a program of the Jewish Federation of Pittsburgh
Classrooms Without Borders (CWB) is a premier provider of experiential professional development for teachers through study seminars that take place outside of the classroom. History, culture, politics and current events are experienced “live” through learning tours abroad.
The exposure to ancient and modern realities from a “first-person” perspective gives teachers a greater appreciation of their subject of study and specialty. CWB’s unique travel experiences are enriched with rigourous content, scholarly readings, renowned speakers, exhibits, arts and direct applications to classroom instruction.
Educators return to the classroom highly motivated and energized, their intellectual and creative batteries recharged and strengthened.
Diverse local programming supports the travel study seminars by continuing to engage educators, while extending the CWB experience to students and the community.
