ROOSEVELT HIGH SCHOOL'S

OPENING ACT THEATRE COMPANY

SEASON 2020-2021

“UNCONVENTIONAL ACTS”

Unconventional acts are defined as "not being based in anything generally done or believed". Certainly, it is unbelievable that we are in a global pandemic. Theatre generally isn't done in a virtual space. We normally do not have students write or direct plays until the end of their senior year. This year is different all around. That's why our season is themed as "Unconventional Act." We are going to explore the unconventional in the acts we present, lifting up student voices and their experiences.

No matter what, we will make theatre happen TOGETHER.
