7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Ellyn Bye Studio

These are challenging times for everyone, but especially for our younger generation. They express to us how stifled they often feel in a system that expects so much. Test scores. Colleges. Careers. Social pressures. Family pressures. It goes on and on. So beyond offering tools with which to write plays, the larger goal is to provide an outlet; to give permission to express their ideas, passions and desires; to allow the difficult questions; and to exercise empathy and embrace the chaos that is “growing up.”

About Visions & Voices

Since 1999, the Visions & Voices student playwriting program has been bringing theater professionals into public high school classrooms to conduct residencies. The program culminates each year with an exciting showcase of original pieces selected from all the residency sites. This free public performance at The Armory's Ellyn Bye Studio features professional actors performing staged readings of plays and monologues. Visions & Voices is offered free of charge and relies upon community support to bring the playwriting experience into the classroom.

Playwriting Instructors: Matthew B. Zrebski & Clara-Liis Hillier
