SPARROW STUDENT PROGRAMS ENLIST MORE THAN 100 PARTICIPANTS

The Adrienne Arsht Center recently hosted a Launch Event on February 19th for more than 100 Miami-Dade drama and journalism high school students to discuss the theatrical sci-fi thriller, The Sparrow, which runs in the Carnival Studio Theater April 7 – May 1. Sparrow creator Nathan Allen flew in especially for the event and spoke to students about his inspiration for the story, and gave them a few hints regarding the show’s surprise ending.

The drama students were invited to learn about “The Ghost Class.” Participants will work on various promotional projects—social media posts, viral videos, event promotions and more—in order to earn points towards prizes such as signed show posters, invitations to cast parties, and the Grand Prize—a walk-on role at one of the performances of the show! Points are tallied through March 31 and the winner will be announced on April 1.

Meanwhile journalism students were treated to a tutorial by Miami Herald theater critic Christine Dolen to kick-off the Adrienne Arsht Center’s “Student Reviewer Program.”
Student reviewers will report on The Sparrow following a Student Press Performance on Friday, April 8, and will then submit the reviews in order to win a chance to be published in the Miami Herald, Adrienne Arsht Center-affiliated publications, and on The Sparrow website.
