The combination of the performance and the educational packets will provide the audience and, particularly the school show attendees with an awareness and a reinforcement of several of life's truths: That every individual is unique, and that one cannot be judged by outward appearances. It is also hoped that the audience will experience an increased level of empathy for others. The actors will write a biography of their stage character as a means of identifying with their character and thus enhancing their performance. We will conduct an audience talk-back session where they will provide comments and ask questions of the actors and technical support team. Participants will be asked to summarize their experience and increased knowledge, skills and attitudes regarding their theater experience by such questions as: What lessons did you learn? What was the moral of the story? What was your favorite part of the show? Interns will be asked to complete a portfolio documenting their involvement, will complete a survey regarding the mentoring process, as well as a query asking how the process could be improved.
