Two Week LGBT+A Acting Camp!

Diversionary is proud to present Teen-Versionary, our first teen acting company exploring the LGBT experience. Teen-Versionary runs Monday through Friday, July 9th through the 19th, 10am-3pm. Friday July 20th 12:00 Call and two shows 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM. This summer Teen-Versionary will rehearse and present queerSpawn by Mallery Avidon on Diversionary’s Historic Mainstage.

Teen-Versionary is unique, producing a new play exploring the LGBT experience, and the ensemble is comprised of LGBT teens and their allies, creating a safe space to creatively explore the story and characters. Through a two week intensive rehearsal process, the teen ensemble will get a taste of a professional theatre process in a fast paced environment where a new play is fully produced in two weeks.

queerSpawn tells the story of The Kid, a fourteen-year-old starting high school in a small town. Everyone knows he has two moms, and that’s just  the beginning of his trouble. While dodging bullies, The Kid conjures imaginary allies, including sex/relationship advice columnist Dan Savage and Dr. McSteamy from TV’s Grey’s Anatomy. This provocative, hilarious and poignant new play takes an unflinching look at what it means to be a teen today, and the persisting stigma around the LGBT identity.

Folks aged 13 to recent high school graduates are welcome to apply for a position in Teen-Versionary. Anyone who wants to feel part of something special to apply is encouraged to apply. Because of the advance timeline, some theatrical experience is also encouraged, but not prerequisite.

Tuition: $400 for two weeks. Some Full and Partial Scholarships are available.
