FRANCES McGARRY, Ph.D. has been teaching theater for more than twenty-five years. The Young Playwrights Festival in New York City became the subject of her doctoral dissertation in the Program of Educational Theater at New York University. She has presented Young Playwrights Inc.’s Write A Play! Curriculum at local, regional, and national conferences. Her new website www.francesmcgarry.com offers discussions on how practitioners are utilizing the arts to make our world a richer, deeper better place to live.
'The purpose of my website has three components: first, to share some of life’s lessons I’ve learned along the way and how that process evolves each and every day. Second, to perpetuate my mission statement: to insure that the arts remain to be a viable part of the human condition from the family, to the classroom, to our global communities; third, to highlight practical applications that illustrate how the arts, particularly the theater, can truly change the world. That it can transform a person’s existence with a blink of an eye, a flicker of hope, a message of love.
