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.

"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

So appreciative of the amazing show and the age-appropriate way that topics are addressed that can, at times, be difficult.  We had parents share how they had challenges with their son wanting to bring a pink rest mat to school as they were worried about teasing. They had a perspective shift after the performance due to the subtle, but powerful reminder to let their child be who he wants and not impose tainted bias. Not only does The Pineapple Project bring a sense of open-mindedness and education to our students and families, but it also embodies the guiding principles of our school and faculty members that we hope to instill in all of our little learners.  

Nicole Pantazis - Kindergarten Teacher, Eliot School

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

Old Ship Church, Hingham, MA

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
