Flip the Script is an original musical drama written and performed by a diverse group of NYC teenagers. Participants meet 6-7 hours each week for ten months. Together, they explore the complicated issues they encounter daily and take part in workshops and discussions around diversity, leadership, violence prevention, conflict resolution, and social change, as well as training in the performing arts. Stories and perspectives shared in these workshops provide the raw material for an original full-length musical written and performed by the youth themselves. These performances communicate the reality of the participants’ lives and their vision for change.
The Possibility Project brings teenagers together to transform the negative forces in their lives and communities into positive action. Through a long-term creative process, our teenagers learn to build relationships across differences, resolve the tough conflicts they face, take on their responsibility to others, and lead.
