The Shades Repertory Theater with Theater for Life

Present

Interactive Workshop on Diversity and Tolerance in the classroom


Theater For Life, an interactive improvisation workshop, is designed to present realistic situations depicting everyday occurrences faced by teachers, administrators, and students in our schools.
TFL is made up of a team of professional actors, lead by a facilitator. The short scenes are acted out, and stopped at its highest point of conflict. The actors remain in character, and are opened up to questions from the audience on the decisions. The scene is then repeated, implementing the suggestions gathered from the workshop participants.
The workshop is entertaining, fun and thought provoking, while also providing a platform for open discussion on race and diversity issues.
Opened to the Public.
