Visions & Voices Winter Showcase
Join us for an evening of plays written by students from our Visions & Voices program and showcased by professional actors. The Visions & Voices 2020 Winter Showcase features students from Cleveland High School, Franklin High School, Grant High School, and Wilson High School.
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.”
