The B-Out Theatre Club will embark on the second half of its program this month as youth participants work to learn more about graphic novels, comics, working in theatre, and finally, meet the cast of “Fun Home” and see the show when it comes to the Auditorium Theatre November 14-19.
Week 5 of the club, meeting Wednesday, Nov. 1 focused on the creation of comic panels, which gave club members the chance to draw their own comics and discuss the show’s graphic novel source of the same name.
Written by Alison Bechdel, the themes of the novel have woven through each week of the club and will continue as Week 6 – to meet November 8 – gives the club a chance to tour the Auditorium Theatre. There, employees of the theatre will give them a taste of what it’s like to work in theater and explore more themes.
The last week of the club will see youth attend the Wednesday, November 15 performance of Fun Home as they see the graphic novel they have studied transform into the Tony-winning musical sweeping the country. The club will continue in cycles so if theater is your thing – keep an eye out for the next B-Out Theatre program!
