Our dedicated team of experienced artists and teachers guide kids, ages 8-18, through an exciting series of theater arts classes, including acting, singing, dance, puppetry, clowning, spoken word, and set painting.

The children collaborate with acclaimed theater playwrights to create original, culturally relevant plays, performed live on stage for their families and the community.

THE FRISCO KID


Handful Players mastered the funky footwork of the ‘70s in “The Frisco Kid”, the true story of Lonnie “Pop Tart” Green, a legendary dancer from the Fillmore District’s strutting scene.

A tribute to the Fillmore’s vibrant past, as performed by its future, “The Frisco Kid” is a testament to the value of looking back while moving forward. Written and directed by Bay Area hip-hop artist Rahman Jamaal and co-directed with Ben Baker, the production premiered on May 18, 2019 at the African-American Art & Culture Complex in San Francisco.

The talented students of Rosa Parks Elementary School recreated pivotal moments from Lonnie’s childhood, when he first embraced dance at age 11.

Hand-painted sets–created from the kids’ own impressions of the Fillmore– as well as archival images from back in the day provided an evocative backdrop.

The theater was packed with an enthusiastic audience of family, friends, and diverse community members, cheering on the students as they retold a piece of their history.

Handful Players also honored the memory of the late San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi, a devoted supporter of the organization as well as causes important to youth and social justice.
