Zoe Greene Health and Educational Theater’s Mission is to provide high-quality and innovative performing arts classes, educational programs, life skills training, and cultural enrichment activities such as theater and oratorical presentations, interactive book readings and book signings that promote academic achievement, literacy, health, fitness, and leadership. Our programming uses the four art forms- theater, dance, music, and creative writing. The Zuleana Program provides workshops in Health and Food Sciences, Wellness, and Physical Education. We have expanded our services to not only reach school age youth, but university level students as well as special events at corporations, museums, libraries, and various outreach programs. “It’s exciting to know that we are making such a huge impact on so many people from public and private schools to the underserved, underprivileged, and those who are at-risk. As the founder of Zoe Greene programming, I believe that partnering and creative collaborations are key. Let’s “energize” learning and make it memorable!”- Cee Cee Michaela

THE ZOE GREENE PERFORMING ARTS COMPANY-THE ZOE GREENE “LITERARY STARS” AUDITION
What started out as a simple children’s book project expanded into The Zoe Greene Performing Arts Company. It was founded in 2015, by TV actress/ Broadway singer, Cee Cee Michaela Floyd. These are the girls that won the audition to be the literary stars of the first ZOE GREENE book! Most books are about one character, but Cee Cee Michaela decided to pick 12 different African-American girls (with very unique facial features, hair textures, and body types) to portray the fictional character of Zoe Greene – giving them each a page in the new book! “I wanted to purposefully give several Black girls the opportunity to unite as a sisterhood, learn how to creatively collaborate, and master the art of executing amazing ideas.” The final result was astounding. They each ended with the pleasure of seeing themselves (not as stereotypical or imagined drawn illustrations), but real girls from their local community in a new hip children’s book.
As the girls showed up at each photo shoot location, Cee Cee noticed their natural grace, charm, and talent. So much so that she launched the girls into a performing arts company. Cee Cee Michaela writes, composes, and directs original skits, plays, and musicals for the girls. Then they engage in a six-week educational performing arts rehearsal intensive camp. These special skits always reflect upon the amazing self-esteem and character-building qualities of Zoe Greene.
The Zoe Greene Girlz Team became the “artsy-intellectual darlings” of South Carolina and performed all over town at very special events. They even performed as the opening act with a Star Spangled Banner Skit for Dr. Ben Carson’s, 2016 presidential candidate (Greenville, SC), while on his campaign trail. They performed for parades, major galas, campaigns, black history events, and women history events. They also took part in cultural and educational events at the Urban League of the Upstate, The Peace Center, The Greenville Symphony, O Cha Tea Bar, Luna Rosa Gelato Café, Hyatt Regency Hotel/NOMA Square, historically black churches, as well as book fairs and youth lectures at Greenville’s Hughes Main Library. ZGPAC strives to help build stronger and healthier communities…one girl at a time!
Cee Cee Michaela is currently scouting photo shoot locations (usually historical centers, famous parks, botanical gardens, piers, harbors, rivers, well-known schools/universities, unique libraries, museums, bookstores, farmer’s markets, and healthy cafes ) in order to create the second book in the Zoe Greene Series. Below, is a page from Zoe Greene Book 1!

Imagine learning about little-known, yet powerful men and women from American history. Each student gets to use their Historical Character Study Guide and Fact Sheet. Next, the participant chooses the historically appropriate props, costume pieces, and tools that he or she needs and engages in critical thinking to navigate their character’s historical journey. Other students are encouraged to collaborate by being added to the improvisational piece under the guidance of improvisational coach and acting director, Cee Cee Michaela. As the students work together as a team, they are amazed at what some of our ancestors endured. From John Brown, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Robert Smalls to Florence Mills and Alain LeRoy Locke – discovering the intricate planning, endless bravery, and the sweet smell of change, freedom, and victory are the just a few of the benefits of this new innovative class. Great for elementary to college students.
