Keyon Dooling, JaJuan Johnson Take Part in Jamaica Plain Elementary School Play


January 19, 2012

Look out, Broadway. Celtics guard Keyon Dooling and forward JaJuan Johnson may be on their way.

Dooling and Johnson appeared at the John F. Kennedy Elementary School in Jamaica Plain on Thursday as part of the Celtics' annual Read to Achieve initiative. The two Celtics participated in the school's play "Standing Outside the Fire," which teaches students about bullying.

"Today was a lot of fun getting to act in a play with the students of the JFK School," said Johnson. "It's so important that children learn to enjoy reading at a young age. It is a skill that you use throughout your life, not just in school."

This is not the first time Celtics players have starred in an elementary school play. Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo joined students at the Winthrop Elementary School in the January 2011 Read to Achieve program.  The students performed the "True Story of the Three Little Pigs," with Pierce playing the role of the Big Bad Wolf and Rondo as the narrator.
