This Saturday the Paramount Youth Theatre will be performing an original production on the Paramount Stage.
For the production, the teens play collected stories and experiences of people who live in Austin, including a former mayor, a New Orleans evacuee, and two parents who go to great lengths to keep their children despite systemic discrimination. The performance will also include original stories, songs, and poems from the teenagers involved.
I really love this program and am very proud of the production. For our first week we brought in Albany Park Theatre Project to work with our kids. They are a wonderful theatre from Chicago that do youth theatre. Below are some photos from the week we spent with them.
