Devised Theatre Project – “Youth’s a Stuff”

We want to chronicle WLHS teenager’s experiences during a tumultuous and strange time. Whether it is directly related to the pandemic, civil rights protests, an ice storm, or anything else since the on set of COVID-19 and distance (now hybrid) learning, we want to hear your stories. Utilizing the words of many student voices, we will devise a play comprised of monologues, small scenes, art, and music. The piece will be filmed and uploaded onto our WLHS theatre You Tube channel.

If you are interested in being a participant within this impactful work, please fill in this Google Form: https://forms.gle/MWPKUq8JazDKCeio6. if you have questions, feel free to contact our Stage Manager, Miranda Wiler – wilerm@wlhs.wlwv.k12.or.us. As a participant, you will set up a time to have a conversation with one of our interviewers. Your words and experiences might just end up in the play! We are happy to keep you completely anonymous if you desire.

Student’s voices will be the main creative force behind this work. Be a part of something important and valuable.

You can read more detailed information about the project here: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1zEgKgs7T5Gxk6PMo6D7tbRGUoN7jEuFYOHPe9m-b6VA/edit?usp=sharing
