The Syracuse Post Standard

Coming To America: Actor Dennis Heaphy, a Syracuse native, presents his one man show Friday about the immigrant experience of those who came through Ellis Island for pupils at St. Patrick’s School 210 Schuyler Street, Syracuse. He’s playing the role of an immigrant, Boris Krasnikov, who left his home in Russia and came to America to begin a new life. Heaphy presents his show regularly at Ellis Island in New York City. Behind Heaphy, Tyler Barnes raises his hand; sitting next to Tyler is Evan Pitonzo. They are both forth graders at the school.



Hi, how are you. Your visit to Collegiate last year was such a memorable experience for the boys we would like to invite you to come back.

"The presentation was done to capture the students' attention. The group was spellbound and attentive during the hearing. The questioning time allowed the group to become involved in the hearing. A wonderful experience for all students and a great real-life connection for 4th grade social studies."
