Act Up & Vote! Virtual Screening and Talkback
Central Square Theater’s Youth Underground presents a screening of the original play Act Up & Vote! followed by a talkback with the performers.
Act Up & Vote! is a work of investigative theater that explores voting and civic engagement.
Inspired by interviews with community members and experts, in-school residencies with area high-school students, and an in-depth workshop and development process with a professional playwright and director, the primary aim of this project is to create a dynamic, visually engaging, accessible play that will help new voters better understand how government works and why their votes matter.
Youth Underground is a resident performance ensemble at Central Square Theater, consisting of economically and culturally diverse Cambridge, Boston, and Greater Boston youth.
Act Up & Vote! will resonate with adults, teens, and tweens. The screening will run for approximately 70 minutes, followed by a talkback where you’ll have a chance to hear from the performers and ask questions.
This event is in partnership with Brookline High School.
