Each spring Ao1 will be touring our Searchlight Production into the community. Our Searchlight Tour productions are carefully selected with the goal of bringing relevant, contemporary messages to the youth in our community through theater arts. Theater is a powerful medium for communicating sometimes difficult, but important content to students who face the daily challenges of overcoming and thriving in their world. A post show Q&A with the actors and director is built in to allow time for conversation with our audiences.
SELFIE follows the journey of eight students as they navigate school, home, and social interactions. As stories are told through scenes and photographs, we explore the added challenge of being a teen surrounded by social media. This show depicts the current social media culture and its impact on body image, bullying, academic performance, family tension, loneliness, and peer pressure. This show is an important conversation starter and would be perfect for students, families, and church youth groups.
In addition to our tour performances, we're excited to be offering two evening performances for our Ao1 families and friends. Tickets are $5 for adults and free to students and youth groups. We hope you will bring your family and forward this email to your church youth group or other youth associations you feel would enjoy this presentation!
