BRIDGING THE GAP
BRIDGING THE GAP is a free intergenerational theater project designed to spark conversations across the LGBTQ generation gap by creating original theater. Using theater games and improvisation, group members will develop and perform an original show. No prior experience with theater is necessary.
Support Bridging the Gap by Playing BINGO!
Bridging the Gap offers a platform to amplify voices from within the LGBTQ population that are frequently ignored or not considered, from both ends of the age spectrum. Our LGBTQ group members range in age from 18 to 90 years old. Their alternate perspectives are not the dominant voices we normally hear in LGBTQ discourse. For this reason we believe it is urgent to keep both our weekly workshops and our performances accessible by removing economic barriers to participation. In order for these programs to remain free, we need your support. Without it, we cannot pay for artists’ fees for the three co-directors, theater rental, costumes, props, sets and transportation.You can help subsidize this vital community-based theater project by playing BINGO at The Toolbox.
