52nd Street Project, Individual Title
ISBN-13: 978-0-8222-1441-0

52 Pickup: A Practical Guide to Doing Theater with Children. The Project's "How To" manual written by founder/artistic director Willie Reale consists of a series of recipes for its programs in a simple, no-nonsense, step-by-step fashion. Along with that are comprehensive descriptions of all the Project's writing and acting programs for children, as well as detailed advice on working with children in theatrical contexts. Incorporated in the manual are Daniel Judah Sklar's "Playmaking Lesson Plans," which cover basic and second-level playwriting courses for children and adults. A third component of the manual are plans and schematics of scenic designer Kevin Joseph Roach's "Instant Set," upon which most of the Project's productions are staged.
