I stopped by Oakland Technical High School this week to interview its advanced drama students/playwrights about a play they perform tomorrow and Friday nights. It’s called “Oakland Inside Out: Portrait of a City,” and it’s a series of monologues based on dozens of interviews the actors recorded with Oaklanders.
There’s a story about it in today’s Trib, which has the particulars about the shows. Here is the official postcard, although it might be hard to read:
I’ve heard great things about Tech’s performing arts programs, and the students I met were passionate about the work that they’ve done – and the class, in general. I hope these kinds of creative outlets weather the budget cuts.
