With the leadership and vision of Bess O’Brien and Kingdom County Productions, Centerpoint is excited to be co-producing the Listen Up Project, a statewide youth created, youth written musical about the challenges and joys, the risk and resilience of being a young person in Vermont in 2019. As a youth development and health promotion project, the Listen Up Project will be connecting with more than 1000 teens across Vermont, identifying interests and needs, providing support, creating connections and building community. As theater for social change, the Listen Up Project helps to create a platform for young people to amplify their voices and help to create the world in which they would like to live – all through the power of performance and theater.
