Sara Morgulis: Managing the Art of Arts Education!

Work for Good recently spoke with our Associate Director of Education, Sara Morgulis about what it takes to manage dozens of NYCCT’s educations programs across New York City. A huge thank you to Work for Good for featuring Sara in their “How I Work” series. And, of course, a huge thank you to Sara who makes her job seem so easy!

Most rewarding part of my job: The touchstone of my career so far has been creating FIVE, our multi-media, multi-sensory workshop designed specifically for students with special needs and the very young. Last year, I won a fellowship from Theatre for Young Audiences/USA, with an application emphasizing my enthusiasm for reaching underserved populations. That fellowship funded my on-site research with London’s Oily Cart Theatre, which I used to design FIVE. Since launching in January, we’ve booked and performed FIVE more than 50 times, reaching 1,200 students, and earning praise and enthusiastic word-of-mouth from school administrators and teachers. Because every one of these students is different—one size does not fit all—finding a way to reach each student has been a wonderful, rewarding challenge.

More About Our Campaign

Theater can be spectacular, dramatic and entertaining. It can also be engaging, intelligent and imaginative. In both senses, theater plays a huge role, teaching children lessons they would not learn about in an ordinary class. The artists who create the work play an integral part in the child’s theatrical experience as well.

As one NYC Grandmother said, “The interactions between the cast and audience at the conclusion [of Ballerina Swan] were terrific. My granddaughters were thrilled!
