It Gets Better
Thursday, April 2, 2015 at 7:30pm
Written and directed by Speak Theater Arts’ Liesel Reinhart, It Gets Better is infused with the dynamic musical energy of The Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles and the internationally recognized branding of the It Gets Better Project. It Gets Better provides a performing arts response to the difficult issue of bullying, one of the most challenging issues among today’s young adults and adolescents.
It Gets Better invites the participation of local artists and speakers to create a presentation that is uniquely personal, and addresses the issues of bullying that may be specific to a particular community while addressing the broader issues of tolerance and diversity. During the course of the week long residency, the company will work closely with our community in a series of workshops, rehearsals and community dialogue to create a performance intended to energize a local awareness of bullying and its damaging effects on a healthy community.
