A Decade of Drama | Manhattan Times

By Gregg McQueen

How to top their ten?

As community arts organization People’s Theatre Project (PTP) celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, its directors are working on next-level‎ goals.

The Inwood-based group, which offers school-based and public programs designed to introduce K through 12 students to theater skills while exploring social justice issues, has some changes in store for its new season, which begins in the fall.

Founder and Executive Director Mino Lora said the launch of “The PTP Ensemble,” a collaboration of teaching artists and guest artists that will devise multidisciplinary works that are “immigrant and Latino-focused,”‎ is among the new areas of focus.

“The ensemble will create performance pieces that examine issues affecting our society, like racism, immigration, gender rules,” Lora said, and will perform two or three different works per year.

Over the past decade, PTP has worked with 6,000 children and youth, Lora said.

“Each participant works with a teaching artist for an average of 30 hours to create an original piece of theater around their community,” she explained.

The People Storm The Palace will be held on June 19th at 7 p.m. at the United Palace.
