Friday: Creative writing group brings stage production to Portola Valley

 

A group of local professional working artists is bringing an original production from "page-to-stage," hoping to inspire young writers and raise money to continue doing so on a broader scale.

Instructors with the Society of Young Inklings wrote a family-friendly show called, "Yes, Nora!" which they will perform on Friday, Feb. 5, at Portola Valley Theatre Conservatory, 945 Portola Road in Portola Valley.

The benefit show and silent auction are scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10.

The Society of Young Inklings runs play-based enrichment classes and workshops in creative writing for school-age children on the Peninsula.

The organization recently formed a partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula and aims to work with about 500 children at different locations this spring. The estimated cost to run the programs is $100,000 per quarter.
