Description

For three weeks each summer, the Alliance Theatre assembles a diverse group of 20 teenagers from metro Atlanta to explore and unpack a classic text under the guidance of a professional playwright and director. Through improvisational exercises, oral history, choreography, the individual performing talents they possess, and their writing, the teenagers create a new piece inspired by the classic text but perceived through their own utterly unique and contemporary prism.

This year the students will be studying Walt Whitman’s collection of poetry "Leaves of Grass" to explore themes of sustainability and human impact on the planet. For the sixth year, students will be guided by the Alliance Theatre’s Mellon Playwright in Residence, best-selling author and celebrated playwright, Pearl Cleage, and director, Patrick McColery.
