About this event

The New Teacher is a fresh comedic play with new and original music. Jessie Jr and Melissa along with the rest of their P.S. Pinewood Park peers are returning to school from the summer, with a mutual agreement of what school means to them and what kind of "Perfect" teacher they would love to have. Plans are derailed when "No Nonsense" Principal introduces his plans for the new school year.

The New Teacher is a fresh comedic play with new and original music. Written by Dedrick Weathersby, a power house cast is assembled to bring each character alive, while shining light on the meaning of "Organically Good Teachers". Teachers don't receive enough credit for their impact on students and families.Hence, the creation of this show, to bring a fun fictional story to the stage. Originally a children's book, now adapted for the stage. This show is family friendly and a celebration of togetherness.
