FREE 6th-12th Grade After School Performing Arts Program
 

FREE 6th-12th Grade After School Performing Arts Program


Actor’s Theatre of Louisville, in collaboration with JCPS, Justice Now, Louisville Central Community Centers, AMPED, Roots 101, Kentucky Historical Society, and PNC Broadway, is offering a FREE after school performing arts program focusing on students who have had both limited and advanced experience with theatre.

Beginning October 19th to December 16th, students will be given an overview of both the performing and technical elements of theater. After the holiday break on January 5th-6th , auditions will be held for JCPS students who are in 6th - 12th grade for the play Threads of Our History: Where We Intertwine.
Threads of Our History: Where We Intertwine is a play that explores the social justice past and present of Louisville, KY by focusing on the lives of a family and those intertwined with it across multiple generations. The play is told in a series of vignettes each written by a different student or group of students focusing on an array of topics: from race-based oppression and protest, to ableism, to mental health, to the LGBTQ+ community and adoption, to generational trauma and healing. This play is a researched journey into Louisville’s past with scenes in Black Walnut Street and the KY Derby, but it is also a window into students’ lives as they strive for justice and compassion in their own journeys.

KY Youth Advocates/United Healthcare Statewide Survey
 
Kentucky Youth Advocates and United Healthcare are conducting a statewide survey among K-12 education leaders to understand lessons they have learned as they have supported students and families during the pandemic, as well as to identify potential solutions and effective communication and messaging strategies to strengthen teen COVID-19 vaccination rates.

In appreciation for taking the time to complete the survey, educators can enter a drawing for the chance to win one of five $25 gift cards to the Kentucky business of their choice. The entry form is separate from the survey so the responses remain anonymous.
