Wish for Changing Lives

by Susie Gidseg, Managing Director, Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble


As this year is coming to a close, and 2012 just beyond the bend, I just wanted to take some time to reflect on what we have accomplished this fall and look forward to our wishes for the future.

This year Changing Lives is finishing the fall semester with 23 students. We have a fall retreat under our belt, a new complex and exciting script we are staging, and over 600 students have already seen our students perform at the No Place for Hate Conference and the We Are Girls Conference. We are excited about what we have accomplished and learned, and the fun we had doing so.

For the future—we wish for a calm, exciting and successful tour. We wish for students with open minds and hearts to see our play, and schools and conferences that are excited to have us. We wish our students resiliency as they balance home, school, and rehearsal. We wish tons of memories, good times, growth, learning opportunities and joy. We look forward to many more exciting experiences with this group as they embark on their spring touring season—with a bunch of fun along the way. Here’s to a great 2012 with the Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble!
