SUNY Potsdam students and Canton Maplewood residents make beautiful theater together
CANTON -- SUNY Potsdam Applied Theater students recently worked with Maplewood Campus residents on an intergenerational exercise called "Memory Theater."
Students had several conversations with the residents about their life experiences and turned them into plays.“Everyone really got a lot out of the experience,” Maplewood activities leader Patience Boswell said. “It was a very interactive exercise and the residents really enjoyed their time with the students.”
