With the support of the Truckee Core Values Fund Arts For The Schools hosted the Mixed Emotion Theatrix residency for schools and the onSTAGE Live public event on March 6th. The residency was a large undertaking and began with teen auditions in December and January, and then 10 days of rehearsals with both the professional dance company and the local teens beginning Feb 25th through the public performance March 6th.
The production performed a total of five performances: for three local schools, a field trip performance with dozens of classes from multiple schools attending, and a public show. The So Now You Know production was crafted to share the personal stories of the teens and artists and was so moving, that students of all ages were deeply engaged at every performance. One principal reported to us it was the best assembly they had in years.
