Teen-Versionary

1

  • Teen-Versionary is unique, producing a new play exploring the LGBT experience, and the ensemble is comprised of LGBT teens and their allies, creating a safe space to creatively explore the story and characters. Through a two week intensive rehearsal process, the teen ensemble will get a taste of a professional theatre process in a fast paced environment where a new play is fully produced in two weeks. Anyone who wants to feel part of something special is encouraged to apply. Because of the advanced timeline, some theatrical experience is also encouraged, but not required.

    Featuring the Teen-Versionary Ensemble

    When a scandal breaks out online in a progressive high school, the Gay-Straight Alliance Club’s leadership is thrown into chaos. Friendships are tested, hierarchy is upended, and how we communicate with one another is challenged in this one-act musical by cutting edge musical theatre writers Kit Yan and Melissa Li.

    Please join us immediately following the performance for a talkback with the writers and director! 

    Even though we may be physically separated, this year’s Pride is all about collaboration at Diversionary.

    We are not only teaming up with The Old Globe to bring you original new live-streamed plays from diverse, local LGBTQ playwrights, our Teen-Versionary ensemble is collaborating with The Stonewall Salon, our ensemble of LGBTQ+A senior citizens, to create new intergenerational work around this year’s Pride theme: Together We Rise! 
    Join us on Sunday July 19th from 2:00-4:30 (PDT) on this pageour Facebook page, or on YouTube to see all new work about what connects us and what lifts us up.

    About the Show:

    Dear Harvey premiered at Diversionary Theatre in 2009

    Dear Harvey by Patricia Loughrey: Extensively researched and beautifully constructed, this documentary-style ensemble play recounts the life and lasting impact of groundbreaking LGBT activist and politician Harvey Milk, as told by the people who knew him best. Spoken word combines with multimedia and music as an ensemble cast moves in and out of the identities of real-world figures whose lives were forever altered
    by Milk’s too-short career. This spirited play reaffirms his impact and the continued relevance of his campaign towards equality, three decades after his assassination.
