1N10 Theatre Program Hits The Stage

PHOENIX - QSpeak Theatre is a program of 1n10, Inc – the valley’s only nonprofit organization serving the complex needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth ages 14-22. Now in its third season, QSpeak Theatre provides LGBTQ youth and their cool straight allies a unique and innovative approach to raising their own voices about issues and concerns facing them each day. Using the power of true stories and experiences of youth living across the valley, QSpeak participants bring a greater awareness to youth needs and provide education for all communities.

This year the program wants to mix it up by layering fairy tale elements over true stories and experiences to cut against the common misperception that “gay kids have it so much easier these days.” Join them as they follow Hero’s journey with his Fairy Dragmother through a land of LGBTQ youth and cool allies who are struggling with just being teenagers, and who want all of us to realize that being gay is only a small part of the rest of “My So Called Fairy Tale Life.”

“My So Called Fairy Tale Life” plays May 1-3, 7:30 p.m. at South Mountain Community College, Performing Arts Center Studio Theatre. Free student only matinee on Sunday, May 4 at 2:00 p.m. This production is offered as a feature of the Phoenix Fringe Festival.
