Stage One In-School is an in school theatre education residency designed to foster each young actor’s personal growth and theatrical development. This year, we are working with five Boston Public Schools: Another Course to College (ACC), Boston Adult Technical Academy (BATA), Fenway High School, Jeremiah E. Burke High School and Urban Science Academy (USA). Focusing on both writing and performance skills, Company One instructors are committed to teaching theatre as a process, leading the student-artist to develop his or her skills at their own rate, while deciding which techniques may best suit the individual.
Through class discussions, improvisation, and creative writing sessions, students at Urban Science Academy put together a piece centered on the idea of breaking the stereotype, beating the odds, and ultimately “Making it Out”. Check out an excerpt from “Making it Out”, created and written by Urban Science Academy Theatre Students:
