The Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble is a program that TAP and SafePlace created in 2003 to address these social problems now, and to train leaders to generate solutions for the future. This program puts the powerful tools of peer education and theatre in the hands of youth who want to stop the cycles of domestic and dating violence.

“Perhaps Tomorrow” is the group’s latest original play created to engage young people in dialogue about issues of cyber bullying, girl aggression, rumors, homophobia and dating relationships. The play models ways young people can support each other and stand up for what they believe is right.

“All these issues are what we see in our high schools; its normal but that doesn’t mean it’s right” said Remandra Crow, Youth Member of Changing Lives.

The 13 youth members from High Schools all over the Austin area are paid to create and perform their piece during their Spring tour of the Central Texas Area.

Since 2003, more than 15,000 people have seen the powerful performances of the Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble.

“Come and see how our youth leaders have grown within the past year and help us celebrate their contribution to the community” said Nitra Gutierrez, Artistic Director of the group.
