Kids following performances


My students and I loved the Pineapple Project. Through watching, we learned about the importance of friendship and being our genuine selves without the play feeling overly didactic. And bonus, many belly-laughs were had by all!

Elizabeth Soeiro, Librarian Cambridgeport Elementary

Pineapple Project performed for our elementary students recently and the children are still chatting about it!  Lots of fun and action, color, and interaction. Loads of energy! Thanks for a wonderful and meaningful performance.

Nancy Maguire Heath, Director

Rhode Island School for the Deaf

The way you set it up---the opportunity to give feedback to make it more accessible for our students provided even more access. We are always exploring ways to address bias, and your play was a perfect way to touch on gender equality.

Sarah McGaughey, Elementary Principal

The Learning Center for the Deaf

Pineapples are delicious and good for you, and so is the Pineapple Project! What a fun, heartfelt way to open up conversations about gender with kids and families. 

Ginger Lazarus, Playwright

"Though it was clearly written with children in mind, it was entirely enjoyable and enlightening for adults as well."

"Encouraging our visitors to be themselves while accepting others, Pineapple Project was both funny, engaging, and empowering.  In other words, it fulfilled the promise of theater – cultivating empathy, perspective taking, and a deeper understanding of yourself and others. If you can do all that while making a 3-year-old laugh, you’re doing pretty good."

Steve Schroth, Culture and Performing Arts Educator - Boston Children's Museum

The Pineapple Project not only promotes open-mindedness and educational growth among our students and their families but also resonates profoundly with the core values of our school. It aligns with the guiding principles we strive to instill in our young learners of inclusivity, respect and positive self image. The show’s subtle and age-appropriate contribution to nurturing an inclusive and accepting environment is invaluable, and we look forward to continued collaboration in fostering these essential qualities in our community.

Nicole Pantazis - Kindergarten Teacher, Eliot School
