For Families and Students

Rehearsal for Life offers after school arts and theater programming in Boston and the Greater Boston area. The Freelance Players offers fully produced, original, issues-based musical theater for Boston area students ages 8-16, and Youth Unscripted offers Boston high school students a stipend to explore improv, theater, visual arts, music, community building and collaboration, culminating in an original devised production.

Our Impact

“Freelance was the first place where I felt like I truly belonged and had something to offer. You taught me how to use my voice and be proud of who I was. I made some of the greatest friends and was at home. Freelance gave me so much.”

– Ella, Freelance Players Alum
