High School Actors Tackle Tough Teen Issues
The Rye Youth Council Players are a group of Rye high school students who present structured improvisational vignettes on relevant topics facing today's students. The "Players" meet once a week to discuss ideas, create scripts and rehearse scenes addressing topical issues (ie: cyber bullying, peer pressure). Those scenes are then performed before students at local elementary schools and middle schools. Following the performance, the players remain in character and begin a dialogue with audience members. A moderator facilitates the discussion and encourages participation.
If you are interested in seeing the RYC Players perform or would like to arrange for a performance at your school please contact Paulette Mann at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Meeting times: Mondays from 7 to 8pm
Topics: bullying, cyber bullying, responsible use of today's technology, transitioning into middle school/high school, peer pressure, tolerance, social networking.
UPCOMING PERFORMANCES: STAY TUNED
