Collaborative Youth Arts Project (CYAP) – A Commissioned Original Play
by Marisela Treviño Orta
Directed by Elizabeth Carter
Playwright Marisela Treviño Orta dives into the world of Bay Area teenagers in this vibrant, fast-moving collage of interlinked stories commissioned for A.C.T.’s Collaborative Youth Arts Project (CYAP), a partnership of the Young Conservatory, A.C.T.’s Education & Community Programs, and Destiny Arts Center in Oakland. Exploring the changing face of San Francisco, Orta asks resonating and challenging questions about how that social, economic, and urban evolution affects young people today.
Students of any experience level, physical ability, race, ethnicity, and gender identity are strongly encouraged to audition. To echo the community reflected by the playwright, students from Oakland and San Francisco are also strongly encouraged to audition.
Auditions: Thursday, May 3 from 4–6:30 p.m. at Destiny Arts in Oakland
Friday, May 4 from 4:30–6:30 p.m. at A.C.T. in San Francisco
Saturday, May 5 from noon–2 p.m. at A.C.T. in San Francisco
Callbacks: Saturday, May 5 from 2–6 p.m. at A.C.T. in San Francisco
Rehearsals begin: June 25
Performances: July 24–29 in the Reuff at The Strand & July 28–29 at Destiny Arts in Oakland
*The Collaborative Youth Arts Project is a 5-week intensive actor and new play development experience taught by professional theater artists that culminates in six performances at The Reuff Theater at The Strand in San Francisco, and at Destiny Arts Center in Oakland. There is no tuition necessary to participate as CYAP is funded by the generous support from various foundation grants.
Unfortunately students are not able to participate in both Urinetown and SeaChange due to conflicting rehearsal schedules.
