A New Play Created by RB Youth Center Artists Premiered
August 7 - 10, 2017 (Past Event)

Francis Blacklock, founder and Artistic Director of My Voice Theatre, an issues based youth theatre program at the RiseBoro Youth Center, invites you to performances of a new play, Illusions, created by eight performers this summer.

Mr. Blacklock writes:

This year, My Voice Theatre celebrates 21 years of using theatre to help youth address some real issues in the community and in their own lives, and as part of this celebration, for the past four weeks, eight young people have been writing and rehearsing a new play, Illusions. The play looks at who we are, who we pretend to be, who we want to be, and who we really are behind the illusion of it all.

We would love for you to come and experience what it is that My Voice Theatre has been doing for the past 21 years.

Dates and times for performances are:

August 7th, 2017 at 2:30pm
August 8th, at 2:30pm and 7pm
August 9th, at 11am and 2:30pm
