Fall in Austin is here once again, that means a new season of Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble (Changing Lives) has begun.
A unique group of creative teens congregates to collaborate on ideas for a new script to tour in the fall. Before we get that far in our creative process, we have to bond as an ensemble.
That could be difficult for a group of teenagers that are at first strangers to do fairly quickly, but for Changing Lives members it’s not a daunting task. We are brought together by theatre and a common interest in social welfare. As a 3rd year Changing Lives member, this is what brings me back each year. The journey each year is unique; there will never be another group that is the same as the last. Ideas and opinions will differ with the exclusive collaboration of ideas and minds of each year.
I have met the most clever, gifted, and inventive people in Changing Lives, I feel honored to have been able to work with them all. The year ahead is very promising and I’m excited to see what it has in store for the ensemble.
