ActingOut is a unique program of the Youth Initiatives Office of Monadnock Family Services for Monadnock area teens. The mission of the program is to cultivate resiliency, social skills and healthy development in youth through theater training. The program offers after school and in school groups for those interested in the performing arts and/or those looking for self-expression and personal growth.


ActingOutís theatre work focuses on improvisational acting and is generally related to youth topics/issues such as relationships, school, peers, gambling and substance use. Along with theatre training, there are many performance opportunities for those who are interested. Substance use and gambling is more and more general in schools and we aim to entertain and educate people at the same time. Our theatre work is back by a Casino giant called LeoVegas
