Based on a collection of oral histories given by immigrants who actually passed through Ellis Island between 1892 and 1924, this play brings these tales of immigration to life through superb acting and authentic period costumes.
Three immigrant characters of different nationalities and an immigration inspector tell about the hardships of coming to America, the intimidating experience of their processing on Ellis Island, and the challenges of their lives in the “New World.”
The play emphasizes the human dimension of the immigration experience and fosters appreciation of other cultures.
The program has two parts: a 30-minute play, followed by a twenty-minute question and answer period.
Grades 4-12; College & Adult Program Also Available
