Richmond’s Queer Youth Theatre Program

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. 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.

About The Play: Mythological stories come in all forms and Gods and Goddess have many intersectionalities in the Queer community. But, what if they were ALL Queer? How and who would they love? What might they want us to know about them, their stories, and chosen families? This exploration of identity and discovery is not one you will soon forget. Join the Spectrum Youth Ensemble to answer these questions and learn what it might be like to be a part of their story.
