Members of the AFT Youth Ensemble and Staff, Winter 2017

About Face Youth Theatre is an Identity-Affirming Theatre Ensemble for LGBTQIA youth ages 14-23. If you’re interested in art as activism and theatre for social change, this ensemble was made for you. Join us for our year-round workshops where you’ll meet other fierce LGBTQIA youth from around the city, work with professional activists and theatre artists, create, act, improvise,and HAVE FUN.

…not to mention devising and performing in an original play performed as a part of About Face Theatre’s Mainstage Season. LGBTQ youth and their allies are provided:

  • rigorous artistic training
  • critical dialogue about social justice frameworks
  • leadership training
  • access to professional mentorship from LGBTQ artists and activists
  • intergenerational dialogue on the most pressing issues facing queer youth
