Goat in the Schools
My Best Friend Is An Alien is Goat in the Road Productions' (GRP) traveling performance presenting four student-written plays performed by professional actors, bringing high quality theatre filled with sound, costumes & props to cafeterias, libraries and museums throughout Louisiana.
GRP is pleased to present four zany and boisterous student-written plays to New Orleans schools. This years’ shows, written by fifth-seventh grade students who have been in GRP’s Play/Write program, feature alien frenemies, a conniving dog thief, a sleepy dad, and a snowman/dog duo who battle ninjas. This year's plays are:
Mr. Alien by Jesus Castro
The Stolen Dog by Nyla Pete
Dad Falls Asleep by Haley Ritter
Socks by Dontrel Mitchell
Each play is accompanied by a short video introduction by the student playwright, discussing the inspiration for the play and the process of writing. Goat in the Schools empowers students to write creatively by featuring theater written by students, for students.
