A local youth theater company is putting on a production of Godspell this weekend at P.S. 212 in Jackson Heights.

Unity Stage, a Sunnyside-based non profit organization that facilitates performance art for children, is producing its first middle school production with this play.

The performance, to take place at P.S. 212 at 34-25 82nd St in Jackson Heights, will have two showings: Saturday May 18 at 6 p.m. and then again on Sunday May 19 at 3 p.m.

The show, performed by 17 students, is about a small group of people who help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and a hefty dose of comedic timing.

The musical features songs such as “Day by Day”, “By My Side”, and “Beautiful City.”

Tickets ​a​re $5 for children, $10 for teenagers and seniors, and $20 for adults. They can be bought online. Click here for tickets.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
