High School: Virtual Too Much Light

Tuesdays | 5:00-6:30 pm

Grades 9th-12th

Teaching Artist Noëlle Gibbs


For the third year in a row, we’re bringing back the popular project “Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind” - but virtual! As a class, we will develop 30 short plays that attempt to capture the moment we are living in now. Through improvisation, experimentation, writing, and creative prompts, we will create pieces that are humorous, poignant, and hopefully present a relief from the monotony of quarantine. All participants will have a chance to try their hands at writing, directing, and acting if they so desire. The class will culminate in a live Zoom performance in which family, friends, and supporters of PVTC will join us and dictate the order of the plays we will be presenting that evening. Join us for an escape from the real world, a chance to use your art to grapple with the challenging moments of our time, or as an opportunity to connect with the friends in your PVTC community.


Bios coming soon!
