Alicia will serve as a playwrighting and acting mentor to the youth company in the “3 Plays in 30 days” creation lab. Youth in York Region (and around the GTA) between the ages of 13 to 18 submit ideas for 1 Act plays about the youth experience as they see it. 3 play ideas are selected and those 3 youth become lead writers. Additional youth (13 – 18) will be selected through an audition and/or application process to participate as actors, directors, stage managers, set and lighting designers. Over a period of 60 days; 30 days for development and creation of the script itself and 30 days for rehearsal of the play the youth will work alongside the mentorship and guidance of professional writers, directors, actors, stage managers and technicians to bring these works to life. At the end of the 60 day process 3 fully produced plays will be mounted at the Yorkwoods Theatre to an open audience.
