Born in The Classroom.
Live On Stage.
Summer Break Theatre began as a simple focus: Teachers work hard, and we all know this. We can sometimes take for granted, however, how much time educators from all disciplines focus on others throughout the year – from their students, to school functions and responsibilities, add that to trying to balance family and friends and it can become challenging for educators to find a creative outlet for themselves. In the fall/spring of 2017-2018, a small group of Theatre Directors (and friends) began conversations with the goal to produce plays that consisted entirely of teachers in the cast/crew, since we had the time. From here, ideas were developed to form a collective and produce diverse material for the community, where all teachers were welcome to join in and express themselves creatively through performance. This company is not just for Theatre teachers! Any teachers can join us.
Inspired from such great productions as Austin Secrets, Bedtime Confessions, StoryCorps and more, Teacher Confessions celebrates teachers and our stories from the front-lines. From funny, serious, poignant, or provocative, we will welcome those serious, absurd, comedic and even baffling confessions - we want to highlight teachers' personal stories. All stories are treated with respect through our performance.
In this special limited engagement, we will highlight YOU, the teacher, by performing selected stories live in a variety-style show; celebrating the personal experiences and powerful impact that you have in the classroom and beyond.
July 30 & 31, 7:30pm
