Theatre Action Project’s 5th annual Youth Arts Festival will be held this Saturday, May 12th from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Boyd Vance Theatre. This festival is our opportunity to share the imaginative work of our Middle and High School students you, our community. You do not want to miss this festival!
This year’s line-up represents a broad spectrum of creativity from the region’s youth, from a movie about vampires, a digital story inspired by a classic opera, a mural created to inspire a school community, to a play about the voices that try to control our choices.
These original works of art will inspire you as you experience the imaginations and bold voices of our students. The festival will feature work by more than 100 students from 12 middle schools in 4 school districts from the Austin area. Festival hosts and keynote performers will be from the Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble.
Schools featured at the festival include, Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders, Bastrop Middle School, Burnet Middle School, Cedar Creek High School, Cedar Creek Intermediate School, Del Valle Middle School, Dobie Middle School, Garcia Middle School, Manor High School, Mendez Middle School, Ojeda Middle School, Webb Middle School, and the Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble done in partnership with Theatre Action Project and SafePlace.
Come out on Saturday and support the work of our region’s youth!
