"A Play It Forward Project"

 

FOSTER

 

The Santa Fe Performing Arts “Play It Forward Project” utilizes theatre as a force for social change and empowerment. These projects tell the stories of groups of people in our community faced with a common challenge with specific needs in this case the stories are those of youth living in foster care. It is critically important to give these young people a voice in the war of the unheard.

Children in foster care although faced with the specific challenge of being in foster care also encounter many of the issues we have worked on in past Play It Forward Projects such  as teen suicide prevention, LGBTQ issues, anti drug and gang programs and anti bullying programs. The Play It Forward Project’s process is simple. First we bring youth of a common challenge together and have them tell their stories. The stories are then woven together in a stage play format and produced for the public at the Armory for the Arts Theater in Santa Fe. The project is lead by theatre professionals in collaboration with participating agencies. We have been working with the Children, Youth and Families Department to identify participants and work with the department’s professional staff to help create the project. We have assembled a talented cast of actors to perform the play which encompasses the written word, music and aerial circus skills.

 This project will give the youth living in foster care a platform so that their stories, their needs and their dreams can be heard and help to develop a greater awareness and understanding in our community of the challenges they face. It is also our hope that this project will give these children a sense of belonging with each other and to the communityMost of all we hope that our production of FOSTER will inspire and encourage caring, loving adults to foster a child.
