Acting Out offers professional training, practice, and performance opportunities for the formerly incarcerated, who experienced the transformative value of a theatre program while in prison and wish to continue their training upon release. Where they may continue to access traits long ignored, mine raw talent, harness misdirected energy, and build self-esteem through exposure to the rigors and rewards of a master arts environment, and in so doing, help reintegrate into their communities.
