• Theatre for at-risk youth

    Adolescents who have experienced extreme stress or trauma, either of their own making or that which has been visited on them, are a particular focus of the Applied Theatre Center. Since our founding in 2011 we have worked in programs for adolescents in foster care, juvenile detention and residential drug rehabilitation. Theatre, especially improvisational theatre, is fun and it allows young people to explore significant issues in their lives. Our programs in this population are drama therapy based.
