Students Testimonials about

Miriam and The Monkey's Paw :


Hi my name is Oybek and  I’m a student at PS/IS 226 school. I liked how the actors and the scenes repeated, and also I liked when the characters gave real answers.  For example,  Little Miriam is actually a Ghost but the actress said she is real. Next time, maybe you can give the microphone to the audience to ask questions, that way, you don’t need to repeat and everyone can hear.

 From Oybek                                                                                                                                                                                               



 Hello! How are you? My name is Parvina from the school PS.IS226. The play we watched on April 5, 2017 “The Monkeys Paw” and “Miriam’ were so interesting. I love all the characters because they were realistic and cute (Madelyn Pedone was really cute and fancy person as well as beautiful character). I loved her! The one thing I enjoyed is answering many of the questions at the end of the play and interacting with the characters. I learned that both stories were scary and mischievous as well as mysterious. The difference between the story “The Monkeys Paw” and the play was that in the play Mrs. White and Mr. White’s daughter was Roberta.   On the other hand, in the story, it was Herbert, their son. I liked Roberta better though. Next time you guys should use a microphone to hear students’ questions and answers. I loved everything! It was awesome. You guys put on a cool play. Thank you for all the characters who worked hard.                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Sincerely,     ~PARVINA~ 

Hello! My name is Er-Khaan. I am student at the school PS.IS226. Today we watched  two plays called “Monkeys Paw” and “Miriam”. I enjoyed when you can say repeat and the actors will repeat scenes.  Also, I liked how the actors were answering questions as characters in the play. Thank you for having these kinds of plays!                                                 

Thanks!         Er Khaan            


                                                                                                                                                            
My name is Mukhlisa, and I’m in 8th grade. I’m from Uzbekistan, but right now I’m living in New York City. I’m learning many subjects at P.S/I.S 226. Right now I’m going to after school every Wednesday and Thursday. We read the story in the after school. The titles are ‘’ Monkey’s Paw’’ and ‘’Miriam’’. These stories are a little bit scary. I enjoyed this trip to La Tea Theater. The actors and actresses answered questions very naturally. I liked little Miriam because this actress is very cute and acts with great skill. I also enjoyed the play ‘’Monkey’s Paw’’ because I liked every character and every actor. I liked Mrs. White’s acting as a mother. She is a very classy actress because she could cry easily and still show happiness at other times. Thank you for these performances and for every actor and actresses.

My name is Nasima, I attended P.S.226 and I’m in 7th grade. Today, April 5, 2017, we went to Latea Theater to watch 2 plays: “Miriam” by Truman Capote and “The Monkey’s Paw” by W.W. Jacobs. I enjoyed how we could say “repeat” or “continue” after each scene. Also I liked how the actors and actresses were asking questions at the end of the play. I learned how actors and actresses improvised in a very short time. This time I was shy and nervous to ask questions, but next time I will not be shy to ask characters different questions. Thank you!

My name is Sosona; I’m studying in PS/IS 226 in class 802. Today is Wednesday, April 5th, 2017 and we (I, Ms. Subramaniam and students from ESL after school) went to Latea Theater to watch 2 plays: “Miriam” Truman Capote and “Monkey’s Paw W.W. Jacobs. I totally enjoyed those plays. I loved how the actors were frozen, when the staff came out and asked questions.  Also, I liked how, at the end of the plays,  the actors let us ask questions and I asked a lot of questions because I was so interested in why they behaved in a certain way and  how they felt. Thank you very much for giving us such a great experience.

My name is Yanling Y. and I am 13 years old.  My school is PS/IS 226.  Today, we saw Miriam and Monkey’s Paw.  I liked how I can ask questions to the characters and I liked listening to the six characters answer the questions that the people asked.            Yanling Y.
