Join our ensemble of young artists and professional mentors as they present a workshop performance of their original script, Head in the Game, which will be staged and adapted by the Summer Trailblazers.
When these students are required to play dodgeball in gym class, the onslaught becomes more that just worrying about whether or not they are going to get hit. With each impact we travel with the characters into the inner landscape that they are keeping below the surface. The young people in class come to explore their anxieties and fantasies, revisit the conversations that keep running through their heads, and begin to question why they comply with a world with which they do not agree.
Both performances are free with a suggested $5 donation to our Trailblazers program.
