Nick Lane came to the Pioneer Valley Performing Arts Charter Public School in South Hadley, MA on Friday, May 1st to screen a sneak peak of "Church Street". PVPA not only gave "Church Street" its 10 high school cast members - but is also a fabulous regional charter school serving 400 students grades 7-12, from over 60 towns throughout West Massachusetts. They seek to "connect the creative process with critical thinking to inspire a love of learning."
