Young Audiences of Maryland Benefit Performance: The Secret Life of Bees

Our affiliates at Young Audiences of Maryland have joined forces to present Young Audiences New York's Literature to Life's stage performance of The Secret Life of BeesSue Monk Kidd's New York Times Bestseller will be brought to life in the adaptation by Wynn Handman.

Proceeds from the event will go to support our affiliates at Young Audiences of Maryland to bring Literature to Life programs to the students of Prince George's County Public Schools. Their goal for the 2016-17 school year is to provide 20 performances, reaching 3,500 students. 

Literature to Life is a program produced by Young Audiences New York turning works of contemporary American literature into dramatic theatre experiences for teens. Performances combined with post-show conversations evoke strong conversations among teens confronting current social situations such as discrimination, racism, poverty and justice. 

Following the one-hour performance there will be a cocktail reception at the home of YANY's board member Laura Handman and Harold Ickes. Full event details can be found here
