Our 2018/19 Student Ambassadors are serving on two teams to plan and execute a theatre-related Youth Summit around the themes of the upcoming Taper production Lackawanna Blues. The Youth Summit Planning Team is working with an expert to program the activities of the Youth Summit, while our Marketing & Social Media Team is working with experts to design digital communication resources and outreach strategies to recruit and engage students beforehand. Meet these students and learn what inspired them to participate in the program.
