A project that combines history, leadership, and theatre
Telling Our Stories: Stearns County Women Who Blazed the Way
GREAT is excited to offer a new summer program intensive designed for young women in 7th-12th grade to explore the stories of Stearns County women who paved the way in firsts. The youth engaged in this project will create an original piece of theatre highlighting the accomplishments of Stearns county women through:
- Research in partnership with the Stearns County History museum
- Interviews with female leaders
- Playwriting and story development with a teaching artist
The original piece of theatre will be professionally filmed and streamed in local schools and throughout our community in the fall of 2021.
SIGN UP BY JULY 2ND! Youth involved in this project will collaborate to create their original piece of theatre that tells the stories of local women from past and present. Through active research and theatre, a new piece will be created and professionally filmed to be shared with the community! There is no cost to participate.
REHEARSALS: Begin July 6 and run through August 19 (filming is scheduled for the week of August 16) and will take place Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 1-4pm at the Stearns County History Museum.
