We are gearing up for another exciting school year for the ninth season of the Dead Man Walking School Theatre Project! Since the launch of the project in 2004, over 220 schools have participated in this unique theatre experience. We invite prospective high schools and colleges to join George Washington High School in San Francisco, Brighton High School in Rochester, N.Y., St. Joseph’s Academy in St. Louis, and many other schools across the country to Make Theatre and Take Action.
We are proud to offer a special One-Act play of Dead Man Walking to church communities, who can join the growing number of people of faith who are exploring the religious, moral and ethical dimensions of capital punishment in the United States.
Young adults, religious education classes or other parish groups who care to join Sister Helen Prejean, CSJ, on her journey to expand the discourse on social justice and human rights can take part in this special project.
To see our full calendar or to get more information on how to participate in the Dead Man Walking School Theatre Project, please visit our website.
