Spring Break -April 14-18th


OMS THEATER PRODUCTION: "LUNCH MONEY"

When: April 24, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Where: OMS Theater, admission is free

Description: LUNCH MONEY is an exploration of the growing bullying epidemic through improvisation, creative writing and performance. Created as a full realized original theatre piece in 2011, the Ensemble Theatre of Chattanooga found much success in bringing together middle school students, collegiate students and young adults with reviewing data, exploring the role of the victim and the bully and creating original monologues and scenes based on surveys and personal experiences. In 2013, ETC was awarded a Target Foundations grant to take this program into the school system. Woodmore Elementary was the chosen school and from that experience, ETC has partnered with the Hamilton County STARS initiative in bringing the same program to Ooltewah Middle School where we are building another original theatre piece based on the data, stories, and creative input from each school.

Who: Kenzie Almonor, Ryan Cain, Madison Hood, Bryce Lazenby, Addarius Lloyd, Swayva Luke, Zoe, Newell, Gabbie Pritchett, Cameron Osmun, Kaytlin Stratton, and Kaity Wilson
