The program of Fringe Youth–Led Producers is a composite of monologues written and performed by D.C. high schoolers. Through writing exercises and group discussion, young people get a chance to take the stage, sometimes for the first time in their lives, and share their own life lessons.
The dedication and genuine affection from the Fringe staff and organizers for the students is obvious as everyone prepares for the big event. The culmination of their work will be presented again at the Thursday evening (July 22) jam session which will feature themes of self-expression and respect.
In the spirit of a coaching and learning experience, the event is unrated, but watching young people find their voice is always a good time. (Note— new anticipated program length is 30 minutes)
