The Trailblazers Summer Theater Camp ends their eight-week program with an original play written and produced by campers. Throughout the summer, the Trailblazers ensemble has worked in a unique mentoring program that places young people (9-16) with mentors who are professional theater artists. Directed by Monet Felton and Jasmine Jordan, youth explore this year’s theme of hunger and how it affects their communities. Join us for two free performances on Friday, August 16th, as our youth share their stories.

ASC is extremely proud and excited to announce the titles for our upcoming season dedicated to the theme of Shelter. We begin our exploration of Shelter in the fall with José Casas’ coming-of-age tale, La Ofrenda (October 23 – November 22). Then, in the spring, Shelter is brought from the page onto the stage with Ghost by Idris Goodwin, adapted from the award winning novel by Jason Reynolds (April 15 – May 14).
