Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble Auditions
May 11, 2016 - May 12, 2016
Do you know a teen entering 9th-12th grade who is interested in the performing arts, social justice, or youth leadership? Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble, a collaboration of Creative Action and Expect Respect, a program of SAFE, is recruiting youth to audition for the 2016-2017 ensemble on May 11th & 12th, 6:30-9:00 pm. In this program, the ensemble learns about social justice and activism while creating an original play that explores teen relationships and encourages youth to take a stand against dating violence, sexual harassment, and bullying. Ideal students would be ensemble-minded, interested in the arts (theatre, visual arts, creative writing), interested in social justice, and/or interested in becoming a peer educator and youth leader in the greater Austin community. Changing Lives rehearses Tuesdays and Thursdays 7-9 pm at Creative Action (late August to May) and begins performing their original play in February, touring to middle schools around the Austin area. Ensemble members are paid for their time and dedication to the ensemble. For more information email Managing Director Meg Greene at firstname.lastname@example.org.
