It is our utmost goal to provide this programming for low or no cost, to students- public, private, and homeschooled” says Kara Lakes, Executive Director, about the mission of Performances To Grow On and The Ojai Storytelling Festival. When representatives of the Ventura County non-profit reached out to local public schools to offer The Mitzvah Project, an acclaimed 75-minute, three-part Holocaust/social justice-themed educational program, for free, the lack of interest was surprising. Only Nordhoff High School, in PTGO’s home city of Ojai, accepted the free educational programming.

The Mitzvah Project, PTGO decided to open up their community shows to reach as many students, teachers and administrators as possible. Both community performances, March 18th at the Ventura Center For Spiritual Living and March 19th at the Jewish Community Of Ojai, will be free to ages 14 through college, administrators, and teachers.

The Mitzvah Project is a moving and immensely important three part presentation that dramatically explores the nature of prejudice through the interconnected lives of three unique characters from different backgrounds who cross paths during the darkest days of the Holocaust.
