'It Gets Better' goes live - Groundbreaking video project is now a touring musical theater piece

The 'It Gets Better' Theater Project is an upbeat, exciting, and funny narrative and musical that includes moments of pain and pathos from the "It Gets Better" YouTube videos, a project started by Seattle's Dan Savage. The work explores what "better" means for LGBT youth through stories, songs, and multimedia on an array of challenging themes. With its unqualified support of all young people, It Gets Better creates and unites allies in solidarity against the pervasive (and growing) climate of bullying and teen violence.

A six-member cast from the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles (GMCLA) will partner with the UW Chorale, and over the course of a one-week residency, these artists will collaborate with other local performers, citizens, and educational and government institutions in building a community performance responding to the issue of bullying in local schools, culminating in a staged musical program at the Moore Theatre on February 23. Ticket sales from this event will help fund the week of activities planned to illustrate the importance of standing up against bullying and teen violence. Tickets for the February 23 program are available now at www.stgpresents.org.

Planned activities are as follows:

Monday, February 18
'It Gets Better' Company Karaoke Night
Come sing along with the fabulous L.A. Men's Chorus at Purr Cocktail Lounge

Tuesday, February 19
'It Gets Better' World Café (6:30 to 8:30 p.m.) at the Vera Project, in Seattle Center (free)
A panel of community leaders will speak, followed by roundtable and smaller group discussions on topics including: What is 'It Gets Better'? How does this program help LGBTQ youth? What can we do to create impact in our community? Guest panelists include Jeff Hedgepeth (Pride Foundation), Raven Taylor (Seattle Queer Youth Space & Youth Speaks), and others.

Tuesday, February 19 (Garfield High School), and Wednesday, February 20 (TOPS K-8 School)
'It Gets Better' school programs
Features scenes from the live production of 'It Gets Better,' sharing of company members' personal stories, song selections, and Q&A with the audience (students only).
