Hero and Project Description: 

Barryte’s innovative teaching idea, “History Through Musical Theatre,” focuses on showcasing the importance of history to musical theater storylines through all stage and screen productions. Students involved in the project will be challenged to convey history through set, lighting, sound, and costume design. With the support of the Voya grant, Barryte hopes to achieve her  goal of bringing the musical "Guys and Dolls" to the Carson High School stage; a golden oldie that captures the New York "underworld" of gangsters, gamblers, and other colorful and often stereotypical characters. Leveraging a history-based approach, she will ask students to defend all vocal, acting, and instrumental choices, permitting students to clearly see the role history takes in shaping theater.
