 Youth theatre project:

The San Francisco Mime Troupe offers workshops for youths in middle and high schools as a paid internship that put theater into action by teaching participants how to create plays on their own about topical issues. Through the theatrical process workshop participants explore the notion that "ideas" matter. Using a well-honed pedagogy, the SF Mime Troupe has developed for its own annual Youth Theater Project, the instructors use theater and improvisation games and team-building exercises to break down barriers, encourage collaboration, and facilitate trust and comfort. The participants are taught the archetypical characters that have given shape to many memorable SF Mime Troupe productions. Time permitting, the youths break into smaller groups in order to create, rehearse, and perform their own short plays about issues important to them. Due to a high response of applications, and not wanting to turn away students, this year's project accepted triple the amount of participants!  Which also triples the cost of the program. To read more go to Youth Theater.
