It’s Our School Too! Educational play designed for Project UNIFY schools

 

 

 

 

 

Background of Play: It’s Our School, Too! is based on the interviews of youth throughout the Minneapolis/St. Paul Metro Area, in addition to Special Olympics: Project Unify Youth Activation Committee members who live across the U.S. While the events in the play have been changed slightly for staging purposes, all of the scenes are based on the stories of the youth interviewed. In short, all of these things have happened and are happening in our schools on a daily basis.

"It’s Our School, Too!" debuted at the Youth Activation Summit and National Education Conference, 2010 Special Olympics USA National Games at the Strauss Performing Arts Center on the University of Nebraska-Omaha Campus. The premiere was directed by Suzy Messerole, and performed by a cast of 13 youth. This script includes that full production, plus two additional scenes that directors may choose to include in the play if they wish.
