A logo for the PROJcast

Welcome to The 52nd Street Project’s podcast — The PROJcast! The PROJcast offers a behind-the-scenes view of the work of the Project as the kids create and explore theater as well as other art forms, such as song, dance, poetry, film, radio and more. Long term-mentoring relationships form the basis of much of the Project’s work, and these episodes will feature reporting, stories, performances and interviews with kids and adults.

The PROJcast theme song was written by Justin & Eric March (Twitter: @eriqmarch), and is performed by Rebecca, Nicole, & Marinda Anderson (Instagram: @marindaanderson, Twitter: @marindanderson).

Behind The Pencil Interviews

Episode #51. Teens Use Their MORE THAN WORDS

In our latest episode, the members of the TEEN ENSEMBLE reflect on what it has taken to create MORE THAN WORDS, and on what the Project has meant to them.

This is a great place to help your kid build their development of who they are growing up to be.
Naseem, age 15
