Joan took time out to visit New York's PS212 School to read to the 1st graders and joined them to act out scenes from the CableAce Award Nominated episode of Shelley Duvall's Faerie Tale Theatre based on the classic tale 'Hansel & Gretel'. Joan starred in the 1983 production in a dual role of the wicked stepmother and the even more wickedly witch! The class of first graders is currently studying the episodes of the highly rated series of plays, with Joan's episode and performance their favourite. After acting out scenes from the episode, the children asked a series of question's about it, including 'How long it took to apply the prosthetics and if it hurt? Joan was delighted to be asked to attend and at the end of the morning the class presented her with a book they made of drawings of scenes from the program.
Joan found all of the kids very well behaved and half of the class of fifty five wanted to be actors!
