this is a theatre for you.
this is a theatre for everyone.
let's get started.
Here's the problem: We had been doing youth theatre for almost thirty years, but it wasn’t working the way we knew it could. We were doing fairy tales where the students pretended to be adults, saying words they didn’t understand and acting out lives that weren’t anything like theirs. In our experience as actors, artists, and educators, we knew that we could do better. We could bring complex ideas and world-class theatre trends into the classroom. We could give our students a voice.
We knew we had a problem to solve, and so we did.
