FIVE TIMES AROUND follows the apprentices as they operate in a world where the only connection they have is on a Zoom call. They meet up, tell their stories and share experiences from their lives. This creates an oasis for these young people, as the world they know is changing around them. Join these five artists and creators as they navigate this new world, laughing and reflecting while doing so.
“Each year, the American Stage apprentice program culminates in the performance of an original work that amplifies the powerful voices of the next generation of theatre professionals. This year’s apprentice cohort has had the unprecedented experience of seeing live theatre as we know it come to a halt due to the global pandemic. We are very proud that these young theatre makers have persevered with an innovative path to share their story and connect with our community.” -Stephanie Gularte, CEO/Producing Artistic Director
