THE STORY:

We The People Theater ( WTPT)  uses theater to educate, create conversations. and stimulate the minds of the participants and the audience. 

 

 WTPT has been a constant presence in selected Alachua county schools since 2011. WTPT runs classes that meet 4 times weekly, targeting  middle school and high school students . Students are  trained to lead workshops,act in scenes and facilitate discussion. 

In the 3 years since it's inception  WTPT students have lead workshops at community centers , various high schools , in addition to working with professionals at a local regional theatre .  The students elicit topics from members of the community , research those topics, and use the subject matter to create original works . 

WTPT students are trained by theater professionals in acting techniques and scene structure.

 

Some of the subjects explored by the students :

 

         Diversity 

         The Environment 

         Bullying 

         Social media

         Privacy

         Race 

         Drug and alcohol abuse. 

         Non violent communication 

         Empathy 

 

A by product of having the students work on issue based scenes is the empowerment that they feel in suddenly taking a leadership role in the workshop 

This leads to bolstering self esteem and more civic minded member of the community. 

 

Pop up Theater

 

Pop-up Theater Camp is a two week nine to five theater retreat for aspiring and experienced actors between the ages of 8 and 15.  The camp is located at Casa Micanopy, 12 miles south of Gainesville near the picturesque town of Micanopy, Florida.  This five acre property boasts rolling hills, natural stone swimming pool, dance studio 

 

   This camp  aims to foster the spirit of collaboration and to support each actor's process.  This philosophy drives the content of the classes, rehearsals, and performances.  It is what allows the actors and the director to create such a unique and outstanding product.

 

This summer will mark the launch of "The Teen Directors Series,

This paid training will give 5 students the opportunity to be mentored by professionals in the field and given the opportunity to direct an original 10 minute play. 

 

In the past WTPT has sponsored 8 students in the our  Pop Up Theater Camp and volunteered over 300 hours in the Alachua county schools.
