Inti Goes Broadway

August 9, 2018 - Selfishness and arrogance never pay. That was the message delivered in a stirring performance of The Leopard’s Drum: An Asante Tale from West Africa by 13 Inti children at the Regis Youth Development Center on August 9. The budding young thespians acted, sang, drummed, and danced the story of Osebo, the conceited leopard who was outsmarted by a quiet and unassuming tortoise. “Drama is a wonderful way for our refugee and immigrant children to learn english, practice creativity, and gain confidence,” said Jaime Pendleton, Inti’s Program Director. “This is the first year that we have incorporated music and dance into the performance, and the children and audience loved it. Theatre performance is a great way to keep them active over the summer months.” The Inti Theatre program is operated in partnership with the Manchester Community Music School. Additional performances are planned for the fall 2018.
