About Face Youth Theatre

This will change your life!

About Face Youth Theatre (AFYT) is a theatre, activism, and leadership development program offered free of charge to LGBTQI+ and allied youth. If you’re interested in art as activism and theatre for social change, this ensemble is for you.

Join AFYT and meet other fierce LGBTQI+ and allied youth from around the city, work with professional theatre artists and local social justice activists, learn more about yourself, create a new show, perform, improvise, make some new friends, and HAVE FUN.

Oh! You’ll also be devising an original play and earning the opportunity to perform as part of the mainstage season at AFT.

Youth ensemble members receive:

  • Rigorous artistic training
  • Critical dialogue about social justice frameworks
  • Leadership training
  • Access to professional mentorship from LGBTQI+ artists and activists
  • Intergenerational dialogue on the most pressing issues facing queer youth
  • CTA cards for transportation
  • Delicious snacks, of course!
