Text This & Special Screening of Student Film: #letsevolve

Text This was written by Tim Mogford
Directed by Hollie Klem

#letsevolve was directed by Hollie Klem and derrived by students in the WYART class: #TakeAStand.

March 3 @ 7pm, March 4 @ 2pm & 7pm, March 5 @ 2pm.

“Text This” is directed by Hollie Klem (of Haberdasher Theatre Co.) with costume designs by WYART student Katherine Stuart, and sound designs by WYART student Kyle Shearer. This play is a suspenseful twist of intrigue as four girls unravel a series of potentially tragic events. This play will also share a spotlight with student derived short film “#letsevolve”. This student created piece draws on their experiences, their feelings, stories from our community and pieces together a new dialogue of support and understanding in a sea of harrassment, bullying and abuse. A poignant piece that will have audiences yearning to join the cause. A talkback will follow the film screening.

$7 General Admission

STUDENT RUSH TICKETS: Students please bring your student I.D. (or proof of enrollment) to the Box Office 15min prior to performance start to receive $3 off admission.

Text This is presented by special arrangement with Eldridge Publishing.

About the Film Project

WYART created a short film about our community’s fight to support each other and deal with the very real concern of bullying in our community. Now more than ever we have a need for compassion for each other, a need to hear each other’s stories, and to #LETSEVOLVE.
We collected submissions from our community & around the country.
Submissions from all points of view were accepted: teachers, parents, students, victims, witnesses, adults who have experienced bullying as an adult, as well as those who have or continue to bully. Submissions were of varying types: art, music & essay formats are encouraged.
Submissions were used to build and inspire our 2017 short film project to create awareness on bullying, its effects and its prevention.
