Self-Expression Teen Theater

(my Feb 18, 2007 post)

Self-Expression Teen Theater (SETT) is a UT after-school initiative that provides teens with a creative outlet and features the preventive approach to violence, pregnancy and substance abuse.

SETT offers a holistic approach to family life education rather than merely urging young people to (just say no) to premature sexual activity, drug and alcohol abuse and other destructive choices. Members help their peers explore a vast range of positive choices from activities and attitudes to adventures that invite a hearty and promising (YES) response.

Phantom of the Opera at the Stranahan Theater - Jan 2007

(my Jan 13, 2007 post)

I took my teenage stepdaughter to see Phantom of the Opera earlier this week. She loved it. It was her idea to go. I've seen it on Broadway, but I'm glad I went to this traveling production at the Stranahan Theater because it was fabulous. The stage designs and sets, the wardrobes, the music, the singing, the dancing, and of course the story were all great. I'd like to go one more time. It's here until the end of the month.

Harvest Theatre presents the play "The Guys"

(my Sep 6, 2006 post that excerpted from the Harvest Theatre website, which no longer exists)

From a flyer:

Written only two months after the tragedy at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, 'The Guys' is based on the true story of a Fire Captain who has to write 8 eulogies for men he lost and the writer he enlists to help him find the right words to tell their stories. A very special limited engagement -- 5 performances only [Sep 7-11] (As our way of saying "Thank You": Firefighters, Police, Military Personnel and Veterans get 2-for-1 tickets)

Local theater groups - January 2006

(my Jan 3, 2006 post that excerpted a Toledo Blade story)

Since I prefer to see a play over going to a movie, I like to post positive news about our local theater scene.

For those who love live theater, northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan is a lively scene, filled with more shows than are possible to see. From September to the end of this year, more than 50 productions opened within a 60-mile radius of Toledo, and the schedule shows no sign of a letdown through the middle of 2006.
