    So Much to be Grateful for This Year!

    By Unusual Suspects Theatre Company 5 years agoNo Comments

    Page Plays are Taking the Stage!

    Page Plays are a celebration of our 10-week playwriting program, and so much more:



    First, our youth playwrights lead the audience in warm-ups and games that they’ve learned in the program…

    …next, we hear from the students about how they created their original play…

    …and then, professional actors perform students’ original play with scripts in hand, followed by a post-show discussion!

    Page Plays are youth storytelling at its besta FREE all-ages event not to be missed.

    Mentors Matter

    Robert McMillan joined US as a S.T.A.R. mentor in January 2017.
    After a year volunteering in our after-school programs, he shares…

    “The experience will stay with me for my whole life. This semester it really warmed my heart to see the kids come together and build an ensemble.”
