By Georganne Sugden - Director - Young Actors Theatre
The Young Actors Theatre, a theater school for children from Kindergarten- 12th grade in Denver, Colorado, has produced Edith Weiss's scenes and plays for the past 25 years. They have been performed throughout Colorado, in San Francisco, California, Vancouver, B.C. and at The International Children's Festival at Wolf Trap in Reston, Virginia.

The scenes in "The Agony and the Hilarity: the Life of Teens" are a fast paced and fresh look at a teenager's life. My actors enjoyed the script because of Edith's dialogue, the multi-faceted characters, and that there was plenty for everyone to do in each of the scenes. I love Edith's work because it develops a sense of ensemble and clearly shows that all cast members are equally important to the production.

Ten scenes and two monologues explore the life of teens: the horror of two girls at the prom wearing the same dress and their brilliant solution, two lost students on their first day at a new school meeting a nightmarish Guidance Counselor, and a guy being dumped for the lack of a car. From school to family to their social lives and volunteer work, this is a funny and poignant look at situations teens face.
