An Original NWT Production
Created by NWT's Rise Participants

An original writing and performance project for youth, by youth, exploring the impact of coronavirus and Black Lives Matter in their lives. The program offered a unique opportunity to unite our youth participants from across our past programming and shows to share their stories, their hopes, and their experiences. Together, they developed this piece.

Participants worked with local teaching artists to create original scripts and music in hopes to connect, support, and inspire one another and our community. The final project culminates in October for a STREAMED performance that is NWT's Fall Youth Production.

Streaming access available for purchase beginning September 28!

About streaming: Near West Theatre's ticketing system now requires every purchaser to create a login credential. In the future, this will track season passes, and for now, it will allow you the ability to stream productions through a secure paywall. Streamers are expected to arrive "on time" for curtain at 7:30pm for this performance. Once begun, viewers will have 6 hours to finish watching the production.
