The Urban Leadership Foundation of Colorado brings light to local teen’s stories with: A Night at the Theater – The Story of an American Teen. On Sunday, October 28, at the historic Cleo Parker Robinson Theater, the curtain will rise and light will be shed on the challenges real teens face in a play written by, produced by and starring local teens. In addition, the young actors and actresses will share the stage with Tony Award nominee and original Dreamgirl, actress Sheryl Lee Ralph.
Teens live in a world that is drastically different from previous generations. Marijuana is normalized, bullycide is at an all-time high, school shootings are a common news story, and social media has enhanced peer pressure drastically.
More than ever, teens need support and a platform to speak their truth. This is a community-focused event where young people, parents, and teachers will see stories inspired by teen’s truthful experiences play out in live theater.
The event runs from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. General admission tickets are $15 for students (18 and under) and $20 for adults (19 and older). 119 Park Avenue W., Denver.
