Resident Artist
Kitty Balay

PCPA Reads@Home captures the excitement of reading, storytelling, and characters in videos that can be enjoyed by children and adults wherever they are. Videos that bring language to life!

The series evolved from our annual PCPA Reads program developed by Resident Artist, Kitty Balay. Each year PCPA sends our Resident Artists and acting students to local elementary schools to read in classrooms. Our goal is to share the joy of stories and literacy. This year we read to over 10,000 children.

Share it with the young people in your life and the young at heart!

Join us for a holiday inspired version of PCPA Reads @ Home. Resident Artists and alumni will read multi-cultural holiday books to share with friends, family, and loved ones near and far.

Dr. Francisco Jimenez, author of The Circuit, will join us on Facebook Live December 1 at 1pm. He and PCPA alum, Christian Arteaga, will read his beautiful, personal story about a migrant child’s discovery of the gift of love in The Christmas Gift. This book will be read in both Spanish and English.

Coming soon is Binny’s Diwali celebrating the Hindu holiday of light and hope. PCPA alum and Equity actor, Melody Perera, is sending this special video from her home in Sri Lanka.

Many more stories will be featured through the winter holiday season that celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Diwali, Kwanza, and Chinese New Year.

Share in the excitement as you invite PCPA’s actors into your home for the holidays.
