Just Actors and an Audience [Video]

This is a favorite story of mine from a couple of seasons ago. Even though February is Black History Month, I had intended to post it in January (since it's MLK-related). I was reminded of it again when my daughter, Emily, told me she was memorizing a piece of the "I have a dream" speech for school.

I really like the physical theater that the kids are performing, especially the lunch counter scene. Proof that all you need for theater is an actor and an audience.
