Teen-edge Rep grew out of first-time teen participants in Rock Divas. What began as an intimate musical theatre class in 2016 blossomed into a large, artistically inclined group of socially-minded young men and women. As the numbers grew, the more evident their collective passion became: a commitment not only to the performing arts but also to socially responsive art. Teen-edge Rep was inspired by their energy.

Teen-edge Rep has two purposes. First, it was developed to train teenagers exclusively in the art of acting: focusing on voice, (breath, projection, diction, language) body, (presence, ensemble-work, character, stillness) intuition (listening, responding, mindfulness) and script scoring (objective, obstacle, environment, relationship, progression). Teen-edge Rep’s secondary purpose is to use ensemble-based plays of topical subject matter on which the participants can rehearse and perform their newly developed skills.

In the spring, students will explore Allison Williams’s Mmmbeth a comedic, gender-bent adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth where nothing goes right. Hilarity ensues when the witches take over the storytelling, Queen Duncan prefers to start a donut franchise, and the murders are more focused on making a commercial for their services. This hilarious take on Shakespeare’s classic will be a wonderful opportunity for students to work on big comedic acting styles. Teen-edge Rep welcomes new and returning students.
