Philadelphia Theatre Company’s Philly Reality is a unique multi-school student performance program, which gives students an opportunity for creative self-expression through writing monologues, which they then craft into a performance piece. The students work with teaching artists and technical artists in sound and lighting to apply design elements to their pieces. The residency concludes with student performances on the stage of PTC’s Suzanne Roberts Theatre. Students participate as actors, directors, lighting and sound designers, and front of house staff, making Philly Reality a truly student-run production. It is the only program of its kind in Philadelphia that gives students hands on opportunities to work in all aspects of theatrical production.
