AWOL's Theater & Performing Arts "Act Up"

The AWOL Act Up! Theater and Performing Arts Program is growing by leaps and bounds everyday. Tonight the kids are headed over to the Telfair Museum of Art's Owens-Thomas House to see a living history tour in which AWOL Theater Director, Lakesha Green plays the part of Emma Jordan, a slave servant. We are all about giving the kids professional experiences in the arts and have big plans to take their professional learning experiences even farther this year with a visit to Kenny Leon's True Colors Theater in Atlanta, GA. Check back to learn more about our upcoming winter trip to Atlanta and find out how you can help support our efforts for just $100 dollars per child.

In the meantime, check out Autumn and Jason, two AWOL youth who played star roles in last years production of Choices: A Romeo and Juliet Story. Autumn and Jason are two great kids with a bright future in front of them. We are proud to annouce that Autumn is already considering scholarship opportunities from Boston College and the University of Maryland because of her involvment with AWOL. We have you all to thank for her success! Check out the video interview below and be sure to share with friends and family.
