Philadelphia Theatre of the Oppressed strives to make its events accessible for all ages, as well as to those who take care of young people. We do this in a few different ways:
- Book your own event: We offer workshops tailored to any age range—kids, adolescents, teens, adults of any decade, and mixed-age groups. Contact us to set up an event or workshop series for your group: 215-730-0982 or "firstname.lastname@example.org"
- Participate in an event: Some of our regular events are great for young people to attend with their caregivers (most games workshops and Forum Theatre performances for example), while others may be better suited for adults (Cop in the Head, Rainbow of Desire, and other things dealing with mature themes or internalized oppression). If you are a caregiver to young people, you may have a sense of each young person's attention span and ability to engage in workshop activities and discussions. If you're not sure, contact us and we'll figure it out.
- Childcare is available at our events for caregiver participants. To use this service, please let us know at least 7 days prior to the date of the event and we will provide childcare on-site, free of charge. If you have requested childcare and need to cancel, please let us know well in advance of the event.
