ABOUT ORIENTATION:  Meeting new people is always difficult. But for the members of the Gender and Sexuality Acceptance Club, orientation day is a lot more than just orientation. See how intersectionality plays a part in what should be an open community of students. How will orientation go? How will they address issues within the group and who will come out on top? Join the Spectrum Youth Ensemble to answer these questions and examine your own biases.

About the Program

Spectrum is a theatre arts education program for LGBTQ+ youth and their allies in grades 8-12. The program is presented by SPARC in partnership with Richmond Triangle Players, and The Conciliation Lab. Through a series of rehearsals and workshops, youth will learn the basics of storytelling, performance, production, and playwriting, as they work together to create an original play or musical.Oftentimes, telling your own personal stories can be intimidating; the goal of this program is for each ensemble member to feel free to express their truth in a safe, supportive, and creative environment. Using the performing arts to break down barriers, youth will be encouraged to use their authentic voice to promote social justice and create systemic change in their communities.
