This workshop shares about teen improvisational theatre program called Reflections that does interactive performances on a variety of adolescent issues. In this workshop, after viewing video clips of these volunteer cast members in action, participants will engage in a few warm-up and focus games. Following this, they will learn the process of developing a scene. We will explore the model that we have been using since the program’s inception, where scenes are frozen at a point of conflict, and then the actors remain in role, while we do an interactive discussion with the audience.  Audience members can ask questions, make suggestions, and can co-create what is happening by becoming part of the scene. This model provides a way to raise awareness about current issues and is both educational and entertaining at the same time. We will conclude with discussing the benefits of this work to both cast and audience members.
