Are you awake?

Project Awake is a live theatrical production that’s performed during school assemblies. Our production depicts the everyday lives of students – highlighting their common challenges and showing the effects their choices can have on one another (perhaps with more dance, martial arts, and acrobatics than is typical). Our mission is to help young people realize their similarities, gain respect for their differences, and unite to make their schools a better and safer place for all.

It’s more than just theater. We partner with local organizations that support young people and provide opportunities for them to serve in their community. Our program inspires audiences to action and connects them to the resources they need to make it happen.
