From a new Google review - Yoga
"Over the years, Yoga has become more important to me and the Prana Center is a great place to practice. The atmosphere is welcoming and comfortable. The instructors are knowledgable, offering guidance for beginners and experienced students alike and take care to offer alternative options and positions to account for everyone's ability."

"I can’t say enough good things about the Prana Center and Prana Productions. My daughter has been involved in Prana summer drama camp, school vacation camp, the larger musicals, and the smaller, age-based productions for several years now, and Prana is one of the defining experiences of her childhood. Roberta and all her wonderful staff emphasize responsibility, respect, and teamwork, and the positive, supportive environment empowers kids to grow and challenge themselves. Prana gives them a chance to make new friends, learn new skills, and gain confidence, and they learn an important lesson: everyone contributes to a successful show, and every part matters. Most importantly, they have so much fun doing it! The happiest days in our household are the ones where my daughter knows she is going to Prana. We are so grateful for Prana, and recommend it most highly."

Powerful drama with wonderful parts
UPDATED 11-17-2022 - Radium Girls is full. Please join our mailing list for early notice of upcoming shows!
In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage—until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. Her chief adversary is her former employer, Arthur Roeder, an idealistic man who cannot bring himself to believe that the same element that shrinks tumors could have anything to do with the terrifying rash of illnesses among his employees. As the case goes on, however, Grace finds herself battling not just with the U.S. Radium Corporation, but with her own family and friends, who fear that her campaign for justice will backfire. Written with warmth and humor, Radium Girls is a fast-moving, highly theatrical ensemble piece for 9 to 10 actors, who play more than 30 parts—friends, co-workers, lovers, relatives, attorneys, scientists, consumer advocates, and myriad interested bystanders. Called a "powerful" and "engrossing" drama by critics, Radium Girls offers a wry, unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsessions with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science.
Wonderful parts for grades 6 and up. Directed by Amanda Bigelow. Produced by Roberta Weiner. Rehearsal schedule and show dates here.
