The #LightRailPlays are back! Rising Youth Theatre will return to public transportation for the fourth time with an all new series of The Light Rail Plays! Partnering with Valley Metro, this project pairs young artists one-on-one with adult professional artists to create 5 minute, 2 person plays on and around our public transit system. Using a wide range of theatrical elements, including music, dance, circus, and masks, this is a transformative community experience not to be missed.
To participate, Sign up for the time you wish to take your tour of public art on the Valley Metro Light Rail System. Eight short plays will be performed on the trains and at the stops from Roosevelt to Camelback on February 17 – 19 and 24 – 26 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday, the last two weekends in February) by the performers of Rising Youth Theatre.
Tickets to the performances are free! (though donations are always appreciated. We suggest a $10 donation with your ticket reservation to help RYT continue to create programming in our community).
NOTE: You will need to purchase a light rail pass to join in on the excitement. However, don’t worry! We will be on site to assist you at the kiosk if needed.
Check in will happen at the Central/Roosevelt station. Please arrive to meet your Tour Guides 15 minutes before the start time of your tour to ensure that your trip through the light rail does not leave without you! If tickets sell out online, a limited number will be held at the check in point at Roosevelt.
