Roundabout Theatre Company’s after school program, Roundabout Youth Ensemble (RYE) is a student-led theatre company modeled after Roundabout’s professional theatre production process. Students can participate in both the school year session and the summer session.
Roundabout Youth Ensemble will be presenting a virtual performance this year! The summer ensemble is currently collaborating remotely through the design and rehearsal process.
The performance will be available to view August 14–28, with a live launch event on August 14 from 5–7pm. Ticket information will be available soon.
ABOUT THE PRODUCTION
Ã¢ÂÂHidden TruthsÃ¢ÂÂÃÂ by Jaden Tench, Nicaulis Mercedes and Xavier Chavez
Omari finds himself in a new world in the city, filled with new people and potential that was unavailable in his old school. Though outcasted, it all becomes worth it when he meets Destiny, the daughter of the principal. Rumors of his hidden ability only further distance him from the rest of the school. Inspired by Othello, the play is a contemporary reimagining of ShakespeareÃ¢ÂÂs work, Omari will have to prove his genuine love for Destiny to herÃÂ father, andÃÂ outwit the sociopathic student council president. How can a small group of teens prevail?
