A free literacy program, for 286 at-risk 3 to 5 year old children from four local Head Start Centers, using in-class workshops led by a teaching artist to help students explore characters and themes of plays through interactive activities. Workshops, offered four times per year to each class, prepare students for fieldtrips to live performances and help students come away with a better understanding of literary characters, story lines and themes.

Acting Studio at Asbury Park High

The Acting Studio is an after-school drama program designed to nurture and develop the artistic talents of Asbury Park High School (APHS) students. Before Algonquin Arts established this program, APHS had been without a drama program for over ten years. Over the past three years, approximately 120 at-risk students have successfully produced six productions, including Little Shop of Horrors and You're a Good Man Charlie Brown. Both productions from the 2008/9 school year received honors and awards and two cast members were individually recognized at the Monmouth County Teen Arts Festival and the 2009 Monmouth County Arts Council Art in Education Awards. One of these students was a former dropout, who now plans to attend Brookdale College after graduation.
