The Theater Offensive Virtual Benefit

By Charlotte Robinson, November 07, 2020

Beyond The Stage is the premier fundraiser for Boston's The Theater Offensive’s True Colors OUT Youth Theater & will take place virtually on Thursday November 12th from 7P to 8P. Beyond the Stage honors the resilience & strength of LGBTQ & allied youth members of True Colors OUT Youth Theater as well as the program's key supporters. This year TTO is celebrating 25 years of True Colors programming & they're gathering virtually to witness performances & testimony that demonstrates how our community's generous support impacts the lives of True Colors youth & alums. This year Beyond The Stage will also be honoring  Myron Miller, The Herman & Frieda L. Miller Foundation with the 2020 Champion Award & Chioke Waithe-Howard with the 2020 Outstanding Youth Leader Award. Founded in 1994 True Colors is the longest running LGBTQ youth theater program in the country. True Colors uses a proven community-engaged theater model to train LGBTQ & allied youth leaders in writing & performance skills. The majority of True Colors youth are 14-22 years old from Boston neighborhoods. True Colors transforms real-life stories of queer youth into powerful performances & workshops based on their lived experiences of topics such as bullying, homelessness, coming out & discrimination. By touring to local schools & community groups, these performances combat bigotry, hate & discrimination. True Colors is a safe space for all youth, where they can explore their identities & build key creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication & problem solving skills. True Colors provides direct service to 90 youth annually & reaches an average of 3,000 audience members each year. Being this is a crucial fundraiser in these challenging times Beyond The Stage tickets price levels run from complimentary to $5,000 but you must register. Guests will be emailed a link to the Vimeo livestream on November 11th one day before the event. For More Info & Tix: thetheateroffensive.org
