Educational Theatre as Calling



Take it from the T.O.P. 

is an educational theatre philosophy integrating psychology, spirituality, and the arts that begins with the premise that teaching theatre is a calling with the potential to transform lives.  

Project SPEAK UP!


SPEAK UP!© is an original, award-winning, play written by Hannah Billups, Raiya Browning, Hannah Loessberg and Griffin Webb and performed by students for students and adults that gives voice to some of the most troubling and traumatic issues facing young people today. The often-taboo topics of sexual assault, harassment, identity, and suicide are brought to the stage in a powerful 25-minute performance that serves as a catalyst for conversation afterward.
