The Teen Perspectives Lab at Orlando Family Stage aims to give young people ages 13-18 purpose through performance in stories that resonate with their unique point of view.  Through staged readings and small productions, teens gain valuable experience onstage and off.

Coming this season…

Current Projects:

ENOUGH! Plays to End Gun Violence

ENOUGH! empowers teens to confront gun violence by producing new works of theatre that will ignite critical conversations and inspire meaningful action. Teens in grades 6-12 from across the country were invited to write and submit 10 minute plays that confront the topic of gun violence. A committee composed of award-winning playwrights selected 6 winning plays and provided feedback in the new-play development process. Theatre, schools, colleges, and other organizations are invited to produce staged readings of this year’s plays for their community and we will join them. Performed simultaneously across the country on the same night, these readings are part of an evening of reflection, dialogue, and action.
