Teens in treatment begin theater workshop


Beginning today, 15 teens in treatment at Odyssey House will be participating in a three month playwriting workshop, the Odyssey House Theatre Project. The teens will participate in all stages of the playwriting process, from concept development to stage production. They will also have the opportunity to learn from a variety of guest actors and directors.

Odyssey House is partnering with City Lights Youth Theatre to run the program, which will culminate on June 8th with a performance at the Studio Theatre on 42nd Street. Directing the artistic and instructional elements of the Odyssey House Theatre Project will be Tom Demenkoff, education director for City Lights. The project is funded by a grant from the Elizabeth & Barets O. Benjamin Charitable Foundation.
