CRY HAVOC CHALLENGES
We are uncompromising in our belief that young people have the intellectual appetite and emotional maturity to tackle complex, provocative theater material.
That’s why we are dedicated to providing serious (and seriously talented) young people the opportunity to create artistically viable theatre under the direction of professional artists, regardless of their financial means.
We seek to wreak havoc on the status quo and to bring a new style of theater to the youth of Dallas and beyond.
In the Middle Ages, "Havoc!" was a military order given to tell troops to go forth and create chaos. In Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, Marc Antony, upon seeing the body of the betrayed Caesar, predicts total destruction. He speaks of Caesar's spirit rising up and unleashing the dogs of war to wreak havoc on the Senate.
