Featuring Follow Me @TioSam
TheatreSquared is proud to present, for the seventh year, the Arkansas Young Playwright Showcase. This year, we’ll feature two ten-minute works as well as an encore performance of Follow Me @TioSam by the Latin/x Youth Theatre Project. Free admission.
The Latin/x Youth Theatre Project promotes literacy, performing art, and other projects that focus on giving a voice to the Latin American community in Northwest Arkansas. They are committed to continuing an inclusive conversation about community identity and cohesion. Follow Me @TioSam is a devised theatre piece that was prompted by the writings of the Stitches Group from Springdale, Arkansas. The play, written by Ashley Edwards, was created from these writings and rehearsals with the original cast. Additionally, the entire original cast and director was influential in the development of the script and contributed creatively to the workshop performances of the play. The initial performances were made possible by contributions and support from the Walton Family Foundation, University of Arkansas Brown Chair of Literacy, Arts Center of the Ozarks, and Northwest Arkansas Community College.
