The Future Perfect Project is an ongoing series of workshops, designed to provide LGBTQ high school students and student allies with songwriting & storytelling techniques and the opportunity to express their unique vision to their community. The workshop succeeds in creating pathways for self-discovery, not only within the individual students, but also within the larger system in which the individual functions. By creating safe spaces for young LGBTQ students to speak out, we extend the limits of those safe spaces until they include the entire school and community. It is only by telling our stories that we come to accept one another for who we are, understand who we might become, and realize that we are one.

Breaking the Code by Hugh Whitmore - 7 PM Performance

Directed by South Senior Cor Barnhill

The play tells the story of Alan Turing, a brilliant mathematician, who devised the means of cracking the German Enigma code which helped win World War II. Meanwhile, he also “broke the code” by being unapologetically homosexual at a time when homosexuality was illegal in Great Britain. It was on Churchill's specific instructions that Turing was given all the resources he required - and his personal behavior tolerated. However, they system eventually catches up with Alan.

The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

Directed by South Senior Tannen Holt

The Importance of Being Earnest is the most renowned of Oscar Wilde’s comedies. It’s the story of two bachelors, John ‘Jack’ Worthing and Algernon ‘Algy’ Moncrieff, who create alter egos named Ernest to escape their tiresome lives. They attempt to win the hearts of two women who, conveniently, claim to only love men called Ernest. The pair struggle to keep up with their own stories and become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise and misadventure. The elaborate plot ridicules Victorian sensibilities with some of the best loved, and indeed bizarre, charactersto be found on the modern stage.

Tickets $10 for adults, $8 for students/seniors
