Atlanta’s nationally acclaimed Alliance Theatre will kick off its 2012/2013 Theatre for Youth series on October 27, 2012, with The Real Tweenagers of Atlanta – The Final Assembly, conceived and Directed by Rosemary Newcott.  
 
The Real Tweenagers of Atlanta is an improvisational musical exploration of what it means to be a “Real Tween.” It aims to discover more about this misunderstood age group: “What makes this age group tick? What makes them funny? What makes them special? What makes them crazy? What makes them real?” The cast has talked to hundreds of middle school kids to uncover answers to these questions. 
 
Inspired by the recent plan to close seven Atlanta schools including two middle schools, the Alliance Theatre asked middle school students to reflect on what a school closing would mean to them.  Their responses in essays and interviews have helped shape The Real Tweenagers of Atlanta - The Final Assembly and are a reminder that demographics and redistricting affect flesh and blood 6th, 7th, and 8th graders around town.
 
The fourth installment of a musical developed for middle school audiences, The Real Tweenagers of Atlanta – The Final Assembly welcomes back a familiar cast of characters - brother/sister August and JB March (played by Danielle Deadwyler and Bernard D. Jones), Chloe Lowenstein-O’Malley-Garcia-Smith (played by Claire Rigsby), Brandon Tubbs (played by Jacob York) and Dr. K (played by Keith A. Hale) - for one final school assembly in a middle school that is closing. 
 
“This assembly is not about complaining.  Well, there may be a little of that,” said Director Rosemary Newcott, The Sally G. Tomlinson Director of Theatre for Youth and Families.  “Mostly, it’s about sharing feelings and ideas and stories that will help make the changes of middle school a little easier – even if it just serves to remind us that all of us are in the same boat.”

For the first time, experiences and stories by real middle school students in their own words will be part of the play in the form of videos. Join the Alliance for this hilarious and insightful look at the real lives of ‘tweenagers.
 
Performances are Saturday, October 27th at  3:30pm & 7:00pm, and Saturday, November 3rd at 1:00pm & 3:30pm.
