    It’s Time for a Change

    By Unusual Suspects Theatre Company 5 years agoNo Comments



    Dear friend,

    When I attended my first Unusual Suspects performance in 2007, it was clear to me what a special organization this was.  Among its many gifts, The Unusual Suspects allows kids a chance to discover their own voices, and then provides them a place where those voices are heard.  I truly believe this experience can change and shape a life for the better.

    I am so proud of how the organization has grown and developed over the last 10 years and am excited to share that our Board of Directors has updated our mission statement to better reflect the scope of our work today.

    The mission of The Unusual Suspects is to mentor, educate, and enrich underserved youth through the creation of collaborative, original theatre.

    The idea of collaboration truly defines US. Our youth’ pride-worthy achievement of creating an original play together is at the heart of every theatre residency AND it’s the secret to our 25-year track record. With our community partners, our students’ families, and our tireless staff and volunteers–we are all stronger because we work deeply together. And as a result, our young people grow stronger too.

    And our exceptional teaching team does so much more than provide typical arts education. As true educators & mentors they work alongside our kids, moving through the process with them, especially when it gets hard. Together, they build deep wells of self-confidence, inner-strength and hope for those who need it most. And it works! Research shows that students involved in the arts have better attendance, stronger participation in other school activities and are more likely to be recognized for academic achievements. 

    To continue enriching 1,2000 young people a year, at no cost to them, we need your help. Your generosity powers our vision of a world where all youth are given the opportunities and support they need to succeed!

    Whether you choose to Support US today or Sustain US monthly, every dollar directly supports our mission! Thank you for making The Unusual Suspects a part of your season of giving.

    With gratitude,
