Odyssey House Theatre Project debuts on Broadway!

Last month, the Odyssey House Theatre Project made its Broadway debut at the Studio Theatre on 42nd Street. The ensemble performed “Shape the Dream,” a collection of 15 original plays, for two packed audiences.

The ensemble was comprised of 10 teens in treatment at Odyssey House. The teens participated in a three-month workshop, funded by a grant from the Elizabeth and Barets O. Benjamin Foundation, where they participated in all stages of the playwriting process, from concept development to stage production.

The workshop was led by Tom Demenkoff and Lori Parquet of City Lights Youth Theatre. For details on the project, including a blog chronicling the teens’ incredible journey, visit the Odyssey House Theatre Project website.
