TeenAge Communication Theatre (TACT)

What is TACT?

TeenAge Communication Theatre (TACT) members are high school students who perform original theatre pieces about issues that influence today’s youth -- including self-esteem, peer pressure, teen pregnancy, dating violence, and alcoholism. The cast of peer educators perform throughout the year at area schools, churches, synagogues, social service agencies and conferences.

TACT pieces present current, medically accurate information. Every summer, members go through training with local professionals in each of the areas covered in performance. View three videos from TACT on "Myths About Sex and Sex Ed," "Abstinence Only vs. Comprehensive Sex Ed" and "The Things We ‘Learned’ in School."

To schedule a performance, please call 855-314-0799 ext. 10180 (toll free).

Performances generally last between 45 and 90 minutes and will cover 5 to 9 topics. Each performance is divided into three parts:

  • Part 1: A short scene, which is left unresolved.
  • Part 2: The audience has an opportunity to question the actors while still in character.
  • Part 3: The actors come out of character and introduce themselves to the audience. During this section, the actors answer questions about TACT and factual information about the topics covered.

Topics include:

  • Abstinence 
  • Parental Alcoholism 
  • Body Image 
  • Dating Violence 
  • Drunk Driving 
  • HIV/AIDS 
  • Lines Guys Use 
  • Parent-Teen Communication
