Mill City Youth Players Present . . . 

Article by Claudia Kittock, photos by Rick Kittock

Many of you were lucky enough to attend the August 24th production, ‘Be You, Be Seen, Belong’ by the Mill City Youth Players at the Guthrie's Dowling Studio. It was a night to remember, filled with pure magic. They are at it again, and a few weeks away from the next production.  

Actors from YouthLink and the Cedar Riverside neighborhood have been rehearsing since November 15.  Twenty young people meet on the 8th floor of the Guthrie several late afternoons every week to study movement and voice with Guthrie Teaching Professional, H. Adam. Some of the afternoons are spent working on writing under the tutelage of Dr. Carra Martinez, Director of Community Engagement. On other afternoons, Jessica Finney, another Guthrie Teaching Professional (pictured below with members of the Mill City Youth Players), directs the actors as they rehearse the production that will be written by them!

The August production was sold out with standing room only. We decided that two performances would be important after that experience. These performances will be at 7:30pm on January 25th and 26th in the Dowling Studio on the 9th floor of the Guthrie. While the actors are hard at work, no decision has been made about the title as of yet.

Please reserve one of these evenings and know that the ticket availability will be shared with everyone as soon as we know! You will not want to miss this amazing opportunity. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
