UCLA Labor Center

Community Theater Classes

Publish date: March 13, 2017

The UCLA Labor Center will be hosting a community theater project in the spring, Laugh Out Loud!, which will explore the experiences of young workers throughout various industries. The community theater project will be made up of a series of workshops and will be facilitated by Kristina Wong.

The Laugh Out Loud workshop will use interactive theater games and activities to explore the experiences of young workers in Los Angeles. It will build off of research and stories collected by the the UCLA Labor Center’s I am #YoungWorker project. During the course, participants will build a humorous, poignant theatrical performance that will be performed during a public performance at the UCLA Labor Center. The #YoungWorker Laugh out Loud theater production can be performed in various community spaces to teach others about young worker rights and challenges and has the potential to be performed at other events and organizations! Classes are free!
