Time Traveling with Cinderella
A new Dover Middle School program pairs UNH theatre education students with special education students.
On a Tuesday afternoon in early November at Dover Middle School (DMS), dinosaurs roamed the auditorium. Meanwhile, Cinderella, Rapunzel and other characters tried to fix a broken time machine and make it back home for a dance party.
The dinosaurs and the fairy tale characters in peril were student actors, part of a new unified arts program at DMS. A collaboration with UNH associate professor Raina Ames’ community-oriented drama class, the program paired UNH theatre education students with special education students at the middle school.
