What: For May’s field trip, we are heading to the Denver Center for Performing Arts to watch the play “Sweat.” DCPA explains, For the people of Reading, Pennsylvania, work is so much more than a paycheck – it’s the glue that holds the town together. The floor of their central factory is where lifelong friendships are made, where love blossoms and where family members work side-by-side. But as layoffs become the new norm and a cheaper workforce threatens the viability of the local union, the threads that once kept the community together begin to fray. Sweat is an “extraordinarily moving drama” (The New York Times) that powerfully contrasts life’s happiest highs with the heart-wrenching struggles of survival. Using warm humor and deep empathy, this 2017 Pulitzer Prize winner from Lynn Nottage (Ruined) paints a moving portrait of today’s working-class America in decline.” Drama credit available for students who attend.
Who: All students encouraged to come! We have a limited amount of space available per field trip, so field trips will be on a first come, first served basis in most circumstances. All students must RSVP through the link below to attend. If more students RSVP than field trip space allows, then academic standing will be considered. Those students who are on track in their courses will have precedence to participate over those students who are off track in their courses. Students also must be on time for the field trip or their spot may be given to another student.
When: Wednesday, May 8th. Students will meet at Smedley at 9:15am and get on the bus shortly after. Students will dropped back off at Smedley around 1:30pm.
Where: Meet at Smedley to get on the bus. We will then be heading to the Denver Center for Performing Arts (1101 13th St, Denver, CO 80204).
