The FRESH theatre program engage young people aged 10 -18 in two seasons a year. Each season comprises of an original play, created for implementation by the creative team at FRESH and workshopped by the young people involved.
Each play addresses a particular theme identified as an issue facing young people in society today. The young people are given the opportunity to engage in the vital questions and messages interactively through the characters they perform and the scenarios the performance engages them in.
FRESH also incorporates a time of small and whole group discussions around theme of the play led by the experienced youth workers, secondary teachers and drama educators that are the FRESH Youth Theatre facilitators.
Using the medium of theatre we encourage the strong, give support to the timid, remind the indifferent and warn the oppressor.
