Arts and understanding

Susan Hyatt heads the many educational programs at Manalapan's Florida Stage, including the theater's Young Voices series.  On Monday, April 21, at 7 p.m., young voices from South Florida, Kosovo and Rwanda will be heard when the company presents the culmination of a project called Children of Conflict.

Flastage Beginning in August, students from West Palm Beach's G-Star School of the Arts, the Children's Center for Theatre Development in Pristina, Kosovo, and the Mashirika Creative and Performing Arts Group in Kigali, Rwanda, have been communicating and sharing their creativity via a special web site.  They have shared their writing, photographs and videos, and the American students have learned from the kids in Rwanda and Kosovo about growing up amid conflict.  The G-Star students created a theater piece to reflect those exchanges.

The program is free.  Florida Stage is at 262 S. Ocean Blvd. in Manalapan. For more information, call  1-800-514-3837 or visit the company's web site.
