Theatre Troupe

Like to act? Want to be a peer health educator? Theatre Troupe is here for you!


2017 Corner Theatre Troupe

Theatre Troupe is a peer health education program that uses theatre as a tool to teach others how to be healthy. This means that as a young person, you get to use your ideas and talents to teach others about important health issues. As a troupe member you will get the chance to write and perform shows all over Southeast Michigan on topics such as depression, HIV/STI prevention, healthy relationships, and teen-parent communication.

  • Get theatre training from a professional actor and director.
  • Make new friends and participate in fun activities after school.
  • Learn about important teen health issues in a safe and confidential place.
  • Earn community service credit.
  • Build your resume for college or work.
  • Earn (a little bit of) money!
