Theatre for Families and Young Audiences

Our Theatre for Families and Young Audiences Shows are geared towards students in elementary or middle school and focus on themes that affect the youth in our area. Each show has four performances: two for local schools, and two that are open to the public.

Future Presentation

We are currently fundraising for our second TFYA, to be presented in the spring of 2020.

Teaching Disco Square Dancing to Our Elders: A Class Presentation

by Larissa FastHorse

Best friends Kenny Two Hawks and Martin Leads to Water, plus outsider Amanda Smith, have all received unusual topics for their 8th grade final presentations. With Kenny on the brink of not making it into high school, Martin flummoxed by where to start on Teaching Square Dancing to Senior Citizens, and Amanda in need of an elder to interview who shares her Lakota heritage, the three teens must band together to make one awesome presentation. Over one weekend, friendship is tested, first love blooms, and serious secrets threaten to unravel everything. Luckily, Grandma Two Hawks is nearby to keep everyone on track with humor, guidance and a wicked disco dance. This play is suitable for ages 10 and above.

Past Shows

Last season, Passage introduced our Theatre for Families and Young Audiences shows by presenting Ricardo Gamboa’s play The Real Life Adventures of Jimmy de las Rosas. Performances of this show were attended by students from Parkway Elementary, Christina Seix Academy, and the NJ Capital Area YMCA.
