Teen Theater


I learned a lot about being able to make friends with everyone, being able to find similarities I have with other people that could inspire a relationship. I learned many life skills through teen theater."

-Participant, 2017


In Teen Theater, as with all Verge Theater does, the art we make is guided by our principles of inclusion and creative risk-taking. Teens in this program are accepted for who they are and nurtured as they continue to grow. Teens in our programs are challenged to take risks, to fail, and to learn.  We believe all teens have something important to share with their community, and we believe theater just so happens to be a great space to do so.

Values-Driven Process

Because we value community and collaboration, every teen who registered is guaranteed a role in the show. We work hard to find ensemble shows that offer a learning opportunity for every performer. We play theater games that help us laugh together and feel like a team.

Because we value growth, we try to produce a diversity of plays to which teens are unlikely to have access otherwise, and we focus on the entire process (from the first rehearsal to the last performance) as a valuable opportunity to learn.

When, Where, etc...
