Stopped off at Pillsbury House to catch this year’s Chicago Avenue Project, which I mentioned the other day. I can’t say how much I love that program. The energy in the room was palpable. The kids were excited. The playing was inspiring.
There’s something about kids, untrained natural kid-playing kids, exploring and imagining, that is so refreshing and exciting. And the actors can get these kids engaged and excited and bring them out of their shells, in some cases.
Why do we lose that?
Even though the whole program is about the kids, mentoring, supporting, and guiding them….the truth is, there’s so much that these kids can teach us.
