Robin Lester, a parent of two kids attending Ethical Community School in Jersey City, isn’t an expert on stage craft, but he knows how to construct things. So as one of the many parents that get involved in various projects at the school, it is only natural that he would be the one to construct the sets for the upcoming theatrical performances to be put on at the school.

“They knew I worked on oil fields in the Gulf of Mexico as a deep sea diver and so knew how to build things,” he said, climbing down from the frame work of what will become a volcano. “I did work on the spring show.”

Lester said he came back east because he missed New York, and moved to Jersey City because Jersey City resembled the New York he remembered growing up.

“I have a daughter in the sixth grade and a son in the fourth grade,” he said, and like many parents his involvement is a way of giving back. And his job this time is to construct three sets for the upcoming plays that include a castle, a cave, and a volcano – which will also be flipped around to make a county fair tent.

He’s still working on how to make the lava flow and how to safely make the volcano erupt, though everything will be in place by the time students take the stage on Nov. 15.

The Ethical Community Charter School’s (TECCS) Performing Arts program has teamed up with the Speranza Theater Company to present “The Once Act Play Series” features two one-act plays created by the students and a presentation of Charlotte’s Web in one act based on the book by E. B. White.

Charlotte’s Web is one of several children’s stories written by E.B. White, a legendary writer for The New Yorker magazine, and considered among the greatest American essay writers.

“Our school has never had a program like this,” said Kim Correro, who serves as arts director, another parent who volunteers for programs at the school. “Our Performing Arts Team of volunteer parents, together with the Family School Association, is launching this initiative to support TECCS in nurturing the creativity and imaginations of our students.”
