Newborn, Ph.D., Jud THE WHITE ROSE ANTI-NAZI RESISTANCE--AND HEROES IN THE FIGHT FOR HUMAN RIGHTS TODAY. A DRAMATIC, MULTI-MEDIA LECTURE PROGRAM. History,
Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Based on Dr. Newborn's book (*LIBRARY JOURNAL STARRED REVIEW): SOPHIE SCHOLL AND THE WHITE ROSE. Using music, 80 historical images and suspenseful storytelling, Dr. Newborn recounts how Sophie Scholl and her brother Hans - former fanatical Hitler Youth leaders, the latter arrested for a teen same-sex relationship - transformed uniquely to become the greatest heroes of the German anti-Nazi resistance.  It was the only public protest against Nazis ever to be staged. But Dr. Newborn’s program does not remain in the past. Relating the White Rose story to today’s most compelling human rights issues, he presents an array of “White Rosers” today, abroad and at home - who risk themselves for freedom and our shared humanity.

DiLorenzo, Kris Acting Shakespeare in One Easy Lesson Performing Arts- Theater
Open to teens, too, this is a fun way for even non-actors to act: using the original method of the actors in Shakespeare’s troupe: they had no rehearsals and had only their own lines, not the whole script. The secret: Shakespeare's acting instructions are "coded" into the text, through devices like capital letters, strange spellings, odd punctuation, and even passages that make no sense. All you have to do to act the lines is be able to read them, and follow Kris's very simple instructions. No experience or British accents necessary!
