Bullying in the Arts Ep4: Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them

Artists at Play is a collective of creative professionals who have come together to curate quality theatre in Los Angeles. We present theatrical productions missing from the local landscape that tells the stories of communities underrepresented in Los Angeles theatre. The audience experience is our priority, and we aim to make theatre accessible to everyone.

Their current production, Edith Can Shoot Things & Hit Them, tackles bullying from POV of kids who are already pretty much on their own. Hear Producer Julia Cho on the topic (and forgive my low energy due to illness):

Remember your 1st time?

24th Street Theatre hired me to handle their Outreach/Marketing for the 15th Anniversary Season, now in full swing.

There are many reasons why this work excites me, not the least of which is the fact that my job is to tell the stories coming out of this amazing theatre every single day.

One highlight, though, is the 1st time campaign. We want people to feel welcome bringing their kids to 24th ST for their first experience of theatre, and so our friends & staff are telling me about their 1st times.

Remember yours? Share it!
