Round House Theatre’s Teen Performance Company
The 22nd Annual Sarah Metzger Memorial Play

By Joe Calarco

On the first night of spring break, 19 teenagers celebrate friendships, nurse broken hearts, and challenge assumptions as they search to find their unique place in the world. With empathy and humor, this candid dramedy examines the seemingly small moments that lead to life-changing decisions as each character learns who they really want to become.

The Round House Theatre Teen Performance Company is a pre-professional program for the next generation of theatre artists. Round House gathers the region’s most creative young theatre artists and provides mentorship to them as they work on a play at our theatre. Selected students shadow productions on the Round House stage, attend events and master classes with Round House company members, and work closely with professional artists and practitioners at every step of the process.

The program culminates in The Sarah Metzger Memorial Play, which is directed, designed, stage managed, and performed by high school students. The Sarah Metzger Memorial Play was established by the Metzger family and friends to celebrate the memory of Sarah Metzger, an inspiring and active member of the theatre community, who was killed in an automobile accident during her freshman year of college.
