Community Play: The Skin Of Our Teeth - Feb. 23-25

Come join us for the annual SSFS Community Play, Thursday-Saturday, Feb. 23-25 at 7:15 pm. This year's play is Thornton Wilder's The Skin of Our Teeth, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1943. The Skin of Our Teeth is a classic of the American theater. Simultaneously a wild comedy and a thoughtful exploration of social issues, the play is a hilarious, heartfelt affirmation of the ability of human communities to survive almost any calamity and to keep moving forward. While written during World War II, The Skin of our Teeth is almost eerily relevant for our times, as the suburban Antrobus family must cope with climate change, a refugee crisis, and a chaotic presidential election – all while caring for their pet dinosaur and trying to go to the movies! Appropriate for ages 10 or 11 and up. See photos from the play here.

Friday, Feb. 24: Please join us for a special discussion with the actors on the themes of the play and their relevance to modern times after the Friday night performance. (See the Feb. 16 New York Times article, "Why Thornton Wilder Matters in the Trump Era.") Also on Friday night, Feb. 24, join the PA Community Connections Committee for an open potluck before the show at 6:00 pm, and/or sign up for childcare during the show! Click here for more info.

The Middle School Head Search Committee has been formed and will be meeting frequently in the coming weeks to consider candidates for the Middle School Head position at SSFS. We invite you to check our web page for the latest updates and information! (Please note that tentatively, we have identified Thursday, Feb 23 to Thursday, March 2 as days that we will try to schedule finalist visits to campus. There will be an afternoon time period, most likely right after school, for parents to be able to meet with each candidate. Save the dates!)
