Embrace your role in the LGBTQ+ community through this performing arts camp exclusively for LGBTQ+ identifying youth. This theatre arts camp is the only one of its kind in the area. During your week, you will learn and use the performing arts to devise your own original piece of theatre to be presented at the end of the week for friends, family, and other community members. Through song, dance, and storytelling you will be able to tell your own unique stories and share your experiences as you grow as a theatre artist and LGBTQ+ community member.


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.
