The Light Rail Plays

An Essential Rising Youth Theatre Original (2014-present)

 

Rising Youth Theatre's signature public art event returns!  A brand new series of The Light Rail Plays will be coming to the Tempe Transit Center this March! This project pairs youth artists one-on-one with adult professional artists to create 5 minute, 2 person plays on and around our public transit system. Using a wide range of theatrical elements, including music, dance, circus, and masks, this is a transformative community experience not to be missed.


We are currently seeking youth and adult performers, designers, and musicians to be part of this year's production! Contact us with questions!
