I am happy to announce that I have been asked to join the Board of Directors of Rising Youth Theatre (spoiler alert: I accepted), an exciting new(ish) theatre company in Phoenix. The nonprofit was founded in 2011 by Sarah Sullivan and Xanthia Walker, two impressive young leaders who bring a clear vision for how their work will positively impact Arizona’s youth and the community at large.
Rising Youth Theatre’s mission is to create youth driven theatre that is riveting and relevant, challenging audiences to hear new stories, start conversations and participate in their communities.
I have always believed in the inherent benefit the arts bring to any community. Combine that with Rising Youth Theatre’s proactive goal of strengthening communities through their (I’ll start saying “our” soon enough) work, and you have the makings of a transformational organization that will have a significant and long-term impact on our state
I am proud to be a part of it.
