annual theatrical production

Inspiring and educating youth through the arts.

These powerful, educational productions raise young people’s collective consciousness, honors their voice, and inspires them to avoid risky behaviors. While the play topics change from year to year, the root of the performances always highlights social justice and teen health-related issues. Written and performed by youth, the goal is for each young person in the audience to see themselves on stage and identify with the positive messages and help-seeking behaviors showcased in the production.

We reach approximately 2,000 young people and hundreds of adults each year through these performances. For the Peer Educators who develop the production, these performances afford them extraordinary opportunities to write, perform, work in a stage production, and market their performance.

This activity is supported by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.
