What: 12 half hour sessions that happen on the half hour. Just sign in once and teachers will continuously come into the Zoom space, so no need to re-sign in. Sessions will be a variety of acting, singing, dancing, skit creation and art in true BT4W style.
Why: We want to continue to connect to our students and offer quality programming. It’s important to us that we not let the current situation prevent students from accessing theatrical opportunities! We are more dedicated than ever to reaching out to our youth to provide them a space to express their creative voice! This camp also serves as an important employment opportunity for our talented staff during this unprecedented time.
Marcie has been our Rising Stars teacher for our Saturday Stars Program for the past two years. She has been working with children in the arts for over 20 years. She is a licensed preschool and elementary teacher with a master’s degree in Creative Arts integrated curriculum. She has studied at NYU’s musical theatre conservatory and traveled the world as a singer/songwriter.
I haven’t been able to perform live for kids in weeks. I teach over zoom, which is better than nothing, but it’s not the same. I miss eye contact and sound that doesn’t buffer. I’m feeling for the children whose birthday parties have been cancelled or postponed, and trying to think of socially distant ways to make them smile during this time.
UNIQUE Birthday Song for a child in your life
Marcie took a break from her usual Saturday event performances this fall to direct young thespians in a production of Where Do You Want To Go? This musical, written by Marcie, will premiere through Beyond the Fourth Wall, a Cambridge based production company specializing in youth theatre. The show is December 14, 2019. Get TICKETS here.
“Everyone at the Roslindale Village Farmers market had an amazing time with Marcie. She brought so much energy and excitement to the event! Even in a very large outdoor space like ours, she drew a huge group of people, and every person in the crowd was completely absorbed in the performance. Five stars for Marcie!”

Marcie was recently a panelist at Lesley University for a discussion following the Documentary Film Presentation: No Small Matter. This event event was co-facilitated by the Early Childhood Directors of Cambridge and Somerville Public Schools in Massachusetts. Marcie represented teachers in the area on the topic of best practice for connecting with students in an early childhood setting amid the crisis of lack of funding and resources.

Marcie was honored to be part of the Circle of Hope event yesterday, showing kids of all ages that they can use their time and talents to help those who are experiencing homelessness. “At Full Circle, each child receives a “Passport of Giving” and moves through different stations, completing activities meant to help homeless adults and kids in Boston and Metro West.” It was fun to share a booth with Dan’s Balloons!
