Express Yourself: Intergenerational Play (MFA Thesis)

Saturday, April 20 @ 8pm
Sunday, April 21 @ 3pm
Touchstone Theatre

FREE - Registration is required, donations gladly accepted


Come enjoy a no-experience-necessary, theatrical jazz-inspired game/interactive audience experience! Developed over the past six months through a series of workshops created by Touchstone MFA candidate Ms. Latrice Young, these two performances serve as both a sharing of what the participants created during the workshops, as well as an opportunity for the audience to play along in their own way. Under the guidance of Ms. Latrice’s facilitation, attendees are encouraged to creatively express themselves and are invited to share live feedback about what they enjoy and/or appreciate throughout the game. 

Created by Touchstone Theatre/Moravian University MFA student Ms. Latrice Young/Distinctly Unique

This performance is largely dependent on audience instruction and participation. Game instructions will be handed to you when you arrive, and the rules of the game will be thoroughly explained. Expect mistakes, laughter, and authentic reactions. Mostly importantly: HAVE FUN!

REGISTRATION: Due to the nature of Ms. Latrice’s thesis project, she is asking that everyone who attends the event fill out the pre-registration survey. This is to collect necessary data that she will use exclusively for her written thesis.
