In 2016 we focused on the idea of story in theatre.
SOCIAL JUSTICE THEATRE – ANYWHERE BUT HERE
A collaboration between The Windsor Youth Centre and Arts Collective Theatre.
Anywhere But Here is based on a collection of real-life stories told by local youth during social justice workshops facilitated by Chris working in conjunction with the Windsor Youth Centre and approved by the Greater Essex County District School Board. The play looked at universal themes facing our youth in a changing world including – mental health issues, unhealthy relationships, drug/alcohol use, poverty, school issues, parents/guardians, peer pressure, LGBT issues, friends, and the systemic challenges faced by some youth in foster care.
The show was entered into the 2016 Windsor-Walkerville Fringe Festival and won an award for Best Cast Performance. The project has been documented on film and will be released in the near future.
STUDENT INTENSIVE – A CHORUS LINE
A VERY MERRY ACTmas: Holiday Variety Show
This year we helped celebrate the season with A Very Merry ACTmas, a holiday variety show. The show featured the ACT Big Band (a group of local student musicians), dance, comedy and theater with an emphasis on fun, inspiration, and holiday cheer. Performers of all ages came together for this family friendly holiday production.
