Join us at the Little Theatre for a free screening of this warm-hearted documentary about acceptance and diversity.

WXXI and Al Sigl Community of Agencies are proud to host a special screening of On the Other Side of the Fence at the Little Theatre on Tuesday, January 20 at 6:30 p.m. The documentary, produced by Henry Nevison, spotlights a 30-year partnership between two Philadelphia schools, whose students learn the values of tolerance, acceptance, and unity by producing and performing in an original musical

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the film's producer Henry Nevison, representatives from CP Rochester, and parents. This event is free and open to the public. Seats are first come, first served.
