Add Verb’s programming offers a unique hybrid of theatre, education, community action, and local resource collaboration to break the ice on difficult social issues. Each of our current programs is designed to harness the power of live theatre to educate, empower, and energize bystander support toward healthier, stronger communities.
Utilize our programs for:
- A supplement to traditional health education classes
- Wellness weeks
- Awareness events
- Continuing education for school nurses, professionals
Our programs are unique because each relies heavily on the presence of local advocates, agencies, and health professionals to facilitate meaningful post-performance discussion. This strong collaborative approach, combined with the play’s educational content, creates an innovative tool to connect young adults with essential support and intervention strategies.
Nationally touring plays currently include The Thin Line, You the Man, and Major Medical Breakthrough, which address the complex issues of eating disorders; dating violence and unhealthy relationships; and the health care sector’s underutilized role in violence intervention, respectively. Our popular Out and Allied Project (formerly known as “Queer and Allied Youth Writing Project”) provides a creative sounding board for youth to address issues of cultivating allies among queer and questioning peers. The Out & Allied Anthology is now available for purchase – ask for it at your local bookstore!
