Young thespians to donate money to Guatemalan kids

“By educating children we can change an entire generation, and by doing so we can change the future.”

Ð Angelo Campus

The seventh-grade co-op of the Forest Charter School is performing a play tonight and Friday to raise money for the education of children in Guatemala. The play is Shakespeare’s “The Tempest.” The benefit aspect results from the students’ study of the United Nation’s “Declaration of the Rights of the Child.” This resulted in the children writing their own “Bill of Rights” for the classroom and identifying the “right to learn” as important for all people. Thus, this fundraiser will help make site improvements on primary schools in two urban slums outside Guatemala City.

Theo Black and Anya Jacobson direct the play, which begins at 7 p.m. both nights at the Jacobson Dude Ranch, 11153 Cement Hill Rd., Nevada City (from Hwy. 49, take Cement Hill Road 1.1 miles and turn left at the ranch sign). Tickets are $3-$5 at the door or can be purchased by contacting Jacobson at 263-2980 or at ajacobson@
