Thank you to all of our audience members for attending our performances of “Invisible,” as well as for your outpouring of support and overwhelmingly positive feedback! You truly are part of the chain reaction in helping us to create awareness of our homeless youth and inspiring people to take action. Just a few comments from audience members:
“Thank you for bringing this issue to the light. I am so moved and inspired to become involved.”
“Very moving. Personalizes situations. No longer abstract or distant.”
“Absolutely stunning show. Thank you.”
“Thank you! Intelligent, well-crafted labor of love, compassion and art. Great acting.”
We invite you to continue being part of the chain reaction by helping us bring our next project, “Body and Sold,” by Deborah Lake Fortson, to the stage. This is a perfect segue from “Invisible” as our youth, both homeless and housed, are at great risk of being lured into sex trafficking. The pimps are bullies who prey on the weak. They are “invisible” right in our midst, looking for victims wherever our youth hang out: malls, libraries, fast food restaurants, schools and even hospitals. They do it for easy money. Supplies of drugs and guns run out, but girls never do. The pimps do it because the demand, which comes from all walks of life, never ceases. Chain Reaction Theatre Project will be part of the national and local movement to tackle this problem in our next production. The true stories in this play, including those of Minnesota youth, will be brought to life throughout the Twin Cities metro area, as well as rural Minnesota. It will take place right before the Super Bowl arrives in Minneapolis; sex trafficked youth will be brought in from all over the world will be brought in for this event. Chain Reaction Theatre Project will create awareness of this horrific issue and inspire audiences to take action.
