Every year around this time, students involved Recycled Youth write and rehearse a new show in an after school program putting in an average of 3 hours, 2 days a week. Usually, the performances consist of a four or five theatrical vignettes, that explore issues effecting their lives from personal angst and pain to the their views of the world at large.
This year their show, entitled "I-zone," is looking at the prevalence of technology in our society. The show incorporates quotes from cultural icons, whose words have influenced them including Jim Morrison, Ghandi, Shakespeare, Marilyn Monroe and others.
Director Joani Rose added, "This year's show, "The I-zone" is a Twilight Zone episode with a modern take. Rod Serling is still there, but the familiar opening animation will take on some new symbols that reflect today's world. For the first time this year, our show will be multi-media with some exciting images projected onto the stage."
