P.J. Gelinas Junior High School Theatre Company took to the stage this October to perform the building’s 16th annual adolescent-issue play, “Me, My Selfie and I.”

In what was the New York premiere of the play written by Jonathan Dorf, the cast of 30 ninth-grade students performed a series of scenes and monologues spotlighting a group of teens who are struggling to find the balance between documenting their lives and living them. This thought-provoking, one-act “dramedy” explored the world of social media that we live in. The show left all attendees with the question, “We seem to be recording our every experience, but are we making memories or missing out on them?” 

Gelinas students were treated to a free performance during the school day, and the cast hosted an evening show for the broader community.
