Program

Social Justice Theater of the Carolinas (SJTC) is currently comprised of alumni of Pittsboro Youth Theater which also calls Sweet Bee Theater “home.” Discussions after Parkland made clear that these young people were interested in applying their theatrical skills for more than entertainment.

colombinus is a play by the United States Theatre Project written by Stephen Karam and PJ Paparelli. SJTC chose this play to commemorate the lives lost in Columbine High School and all school shootings. This play is important because it deftly unites rather than divides. Instead of focusing on hot-button topics like gun control, columbinus focuses on what we can do to promote conversation around how we treat one another.

Thanks to a grant from Manbites Dog Theater Fund, these performances will be free to all school employees.

Notes

Performance tickets will be $10 for general admission, and free to all school employees. School employees are able to reserve a ticket online as long as you bring your staff ID with you. 

Please note that this show has extreme language, adult situations, and violence. No one under 13 will be admitted without a parent. After each performance, a counselor will lead a community discussion between the actors and the audience about school shootings.
