What we do
EDUCATIONAL PLAY PRODUCTIONS (E.P.P.)– Founded by husband and wife playwrights, Cándido Tirado and Carmen Rivera, in 2003, E.P.P. presents plays that are written in the voice of the young people. We use theatre and follow-up discussions to take a frank look at the issues affecting student’s lives. Students examine the consequences of the choices they make and learn the importance of considering all the options and making informed decisions.
*OVER 150 SCHOOLS!
*OVER 300 PERFORMANCES!
*OVER 75,000 STUDENTS SERVED!
E.P.P. has an ensemble of 12 professional actors. Many have been seen on movies, TV shows such as Law and Order, Sesame Street, Malcolm In The Middle, Electric Company and they’ve performed in many plays throughout New York City. They are also experienced teaching artists, which gives them insight into our students.
