How outdoor theater ignites social change

Live outdoor theater triggers change in our world by engaging audiences in a shared, authentic and active experience. Amy believes that accessibility is the key to sparking a dialogue of societal understanding and transformation. By bringing together diverse audiences and revealing our common human condition, people who experience live theater are moved to see our sameness, not our differences.
