Mission Statement

Teens 'N Theater (TNT) is an after school program dedicated to youth empowerment training and education commanded by the disciplines of the Performing Arts, with Theatre as its facilitator. Through guided mentorship, (TNT) fuels a "hands-on" leadership environment for young adults to "take charge", leading to classes and directorial tasks being conducted by the youth themselves.
We nurture teenagers with desire and passion challenged by a high level of creative excellence- tools transferable to be productive citizens from the streets, to any stage format, beneficial to their lives and Society at large.

Description

Teens 'N Theater was created in 2008 as a school based activity by 2 students interested in an artistic outlet and a teacher with a vision. Through creation and vision TNT produced three shows at the school and engaged over 50 teenagers in theater per show; and in two and a half years TNT has dazzled audiences of over 300 in the three musical productions.

TNT students act as cast and crew during the production of each show operating lights, audio, set effects as well as stage manager and assistant directors. All costumes, props were made by the teens involved and community volunteers. Additionally,each show has been funded by the money raised by the youth of TNT and their director.

In 2010 TNT received the year's highest honor at the school- The Vision Award.

Through perseverance and resilience in 2011 TNT became incorporated in the District of Columbia as a non-profit organization and operates out of Harry Thomas Recreation Center.
