Traveling with Changing Lives

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

Changing Lives Youth Ensemble has the exciting opportunity to take five of our students to the National Conference on Health and Domestic Violence, put on by Futures Without Violence, in San Francisco, CA. Our students will be performing a 15 minute selection of their play, Outside the Box, to over 650 audience members from all over the US. This is an awesome opportunity for Changing Lives to be showcased on a national level and also for us to experience traveling together.
There is a lot that goes into traveling—but we know our students are ready for the challenge! From first time plane flights, to navigating the hills of San Francisco, to performing in new and exciting spaces, to exploring Chinatown– I am sure this will be a trip that we, and our students, will remember for a long time.

Stay tuned to find out how it all went! (The photo above of San Fran bound students was taken by Changing Lives-er Summor Elliott.)

P.S. My favorite hairstyle is anything big, curly, and rock and roll. See you at TAP’s Big Hair Country Fair on March 24th at the Salt Lick Pavillion! To buy tickets visit: TAP Big Hair. Proceeds benefit Theatre Action Project.
