Teens Speak Out

Teenage creatives, aged 16 and up, find their voice as they choose a current social topic and then write, develop, and star in a production based on the chosen subject matter.


Teens Speak Out: Welcome Home

plays about social change

directed by LaRonda Etheridge

This season's Teens Speak Out will be broaching the subject of unhoused youth as it pertains to our community and to the nation. TSO productions are a mix of pre-written works, devised works, and movement. The starting off place for this year's production is an original script written by Stacey Spain called "Now I Lay Me Down 2 Sleep." RLT partners with local organizations to also develop post show talk backs that delve further into the subject matter and give these young people an opportunity to express their own opinions and experiences with the audience.
