Jindal will also perform a brief excerpt from “A Voice of My Own,” the next CAST production (running March 14-15). The staged reading is directed by Desiree Amyx-Mackintosh.
SMART is a nonprofit organization providing literacy help to children in grades K-3 and, new this year, to Head Start preschoolers. SMART operates in the schools but all funding from the program comes from private donations.
