What We are Most Excited for This Week

LOUD presents:

The Scarlet Rebellion

LOUD, a New Orleans Queer Youth Theatre Company, presents one show a year that is developed through a rigorous, youth-led ensemble process, highlighting themes such as police violence, intersectional identity, combating injustice, and building solidarity. This show could not have better timing!

This production is about queer youth attempting to overthrow a corrupt abusive government of Party City. The characters build community while learning the challenges of creating hope for anew society that cares for marginalized people.

Violet and her comrades in The Scarlet Rebellion and fighting for the rights they deserve. They will fight for their rights , as well as trust within their own inner circle. Will they be able to overcome these challenges of everyday life in Party City? Can they protect each own with so much at stake? Find out on June 12!

The original piece is by the five amazing ensemble members who have worked so hard all year to present their final project. COVID-19 threatened to put a halt to their final presentation, after some pivoting and problem solving they have created a livestream theatrical experience.
