Teen Studio Theatre
for Grades 5-12
& Lots of Fun!
A 'Talk Show' Style Presentation led by an experienced, licensed psychotherapist.
You Choose the Topics!
Every Performance is Customized for Your Group!
This thought-provoking and entertaining "talk-show
style" audience participation show really holds the attention of this age group,
and most of all, is lots of fun!
It’s effective and sparks a dialogue about a range of important topics. Here are some that are frequently requested:
- Responsible Behavior
- Bullying & Cyber-Bullying
- Decision Making & Critical Thinking
- School Issues
- Family Issues
- Substance Abuse
- Peer Pressure & Self Esteem
Here’s the way it works:
We'll help you
select 3 or 4 topics that would be best for your group. For more topic
choices, please look at the lists below. After
the topics are selected,we'll put together a custom
presentation for your group.
The format keeps everyone involved and interested.
The 2 actors
present a series of short skits about the selected topics. Each skit is left
open-ended so the audience can 'talk-back' to the characters in the skit. The
students can comment and give their suggestions as to how to solve the problems
presented. What makes it really intriguing, is that during
the ‘talk-back’, the actors stay in character and speak to the students as
though they were those people portrayed in the skit!
The skits and guided
discussions during the ‘talk-back’ are all led by Mark J. Cherny, a licensed and experienced
He has worked extensively with children,
teens, and families, and has a vibrant and friendly professional manner that
encourages lots of student participation.
Teen Studio Theatre is a great way to open a forum
for a guided discussion about a full range of issues and subjects! Critical thinking, brainstorming and exploring
options to find a solution to a problem are key skills your students will have
the opportunity to practice during this unique show. You can book one show or a series. Easy to
use lesson plans are available for post-show follow-up.
