BETWEEN THE LINES PROJECT
Be Theatre has had over a decade of success with its annual Literature Alive Project, which works to bring popular children's books to life on stage and gives kids their own copy of the story for free. Going into our 12th season, Be Theatre piloted our new teen outreach program called the BEtween the Lines Project! Our intention is for Be Theatre to annually produce an impactful production that partners with local organizations and experts to open up discussions and build awareness towards issues faced in our own neighborhoods by young adults.
We are piloting our BEtween the Lines Project with a musical called Isabel and the Runaway Train. The mission of this important show is to normalize the ability to respond supportively to a survivor of sexual maltreatment. Along with the play, the playwright created a training course to teach people how to respond verbally and non-verbally when someone discloses an incident to you. We were able to partner with Open Arms Rape Crisis Center, the Texas Association Against Sexual Assault, NAMI, and a licensed counselor with Region 15 to speak to our cast and audiences about the topics discussed. We were also able to partner with the Boys and Girls Club of San Angelo to bring the story, experts, and training to local teens.
2019 Shakespeare on the Concho is A Midsummer Night's Dream, runs une 7,8,9, 14, 15 at 7pm at the Brooks and Bates Theatre at San Angelo PAC.
