Past Performances

In this five-week program, participants act as ambassadors for the theatre and for their communities by collaborating in ensemble-based, youth-driven creation of new virtual theatre pieces in response to political and social events.

Led by Associate Director of Education Quenna Barrett, participants collaborate with their peers to identify a social issue and design theatre-based responses. As part of that process, participants learn their legal rights and the historical context underpinning our current socio-political moment.

Open to high school and college-aged youth interested in civic engagement through theatre and arts leadership.
