The Theater Offensive seeks experienced theater teaching artist to coordinate, manage and teach community workshops, including the Advanced Training Program, for the True Colors Training Studio.
True Colors: Out Youth Theater programs use a proven community-based theater approach to train and activate lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and allied youth leaders ages 14-29. True Colors youth present the diversity of LGBT lives in art so bold it breaks through personal isolation, challenges the status quo, and builds thriving communities. Since 1994, True Colors youth have been creating shows about their lives and performing them throughout Massachusetts. The Theater Offensive works with youth leaders to develop comprehensive True Colors programming that engages each participant deeply in our mission. Program components include:
*True Colors Troupe engages youth of all skill levels year-round in theater skills training, devising, touring and production through the Summer Intensive and Touring Troupes.
*True Colors Training Studio offers a full-range of community workshops, including the Advanced Training Program.
*True Colors Creative Action Crew is a troupe of experienced youth that bring True Colors workshops and performances further into the community.
*True Colors Leadership and Inclusion Council equips youth to make decisions about all of TTO's youth-related programming and join the governing bodies of TTO and our community allies.
The Training Studio is intended to provide LGBT and allied youth additional opportunities to gain specific theater skills through two tracks of programming, including community workshops and advanced training. The Advanced Training Program provides opportunities for experienced True Colors members, up to age 29, to engage in a higher level of theatrical training. This curriculum will include, but is not limited to an exploration of theater history, technical theater, acting, directing and exploration of more specific theater methodology. The Training Studio will also host workshops with various lengths and subject matter for LGBT youth and allies from the community, as well as youth already enrolled in True Colors programs.
