Past Performances

In this twelve-session program, participants will 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 Quenna Barrett and Sam Mauceri, participants will collaborate with current members of the Goodman Youth Arts Council and their peers to identify a social issue and design theatre-based responses. As part of that process, participants will learn their legal rights and 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.
