Theatre Action Project’s 5th annual Youth Arts Festival will be held on Saturday, May 12th from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Boyd Vance Theatre at the George Washington Carver Museum. Vampires and Classic Opera Inspire Teen Performances at this year's TAP's Youth Arts Festival. This year’s festival will feature work by more than 100 students from 12 middle schools in 4 school districts from the Austin area. Festival hosts and keynote performers will be from the Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble (CLYTE). CLYTE is done in partnership with Theatre Action Project and SafePlace. The festival line up represents a broad spectrum of creativity from the region’s youth, from a movie about vampires, a digital story inspired by a classic opera, a mural created to inspire a school community, to a play about the voices that try to control our choices. In addition, TAP will be presenting its inaugural Shining Light Awards.
