(HACKETTSTOWN, NJ) - Centenary Stage Company and American Patchwork Quartet are partnering together to collect heritage stories for the #AmericanPatchworkProject. This project will culminate with A Conversation with American Patchwork Quartet on January 22 at 3 p.m. where American Patchwork Quartet will share about their own heritage, their music, and their mission. For more information on how to share a story, go to centenarystageco.org and to make a reservation call Centenary Stage Company’s box office at (908) 979-0900.
There are no requirements as to what a heritage story is in order for it to be submitted. The story can be anything; an immigration story or that of parents / grandparents, a simple tracing of ancestral roots, a specific moment, experience, or story passed down or perhaps even a continued tradition that is part of an inherited sense of family identity. These stories will be collected now through January 21, 2022 and shared across Centenary Stage Company’s social media platforms as part of the #AmericanPatchworkProject.
There are two (2) formats for submitting a heritage story. The first is a video submission of the story being told. The second is a written submission. Written stories can be submitted digitally or dropped off at the Centenary Stage Company box office between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m. starting January 3, 2022. Centenary Stage Company will also have a station set up to record stories in the Lackland Center between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m. on January 5, 12, and 19, 2022 to help anyone who would like to record their heritage story.
