The QuaranTEAM Collective is looking for actors, singers, and dancers of all levels of experience who are committed to maintaining all necessary health and safety protocols in order to safely and successfully perform together. The QTC will be a small youth ensemble who will collaborate with one another and youth from Indie Memphis to create a video that will showcase all of their talents. This program will engage performers in all aspects of theatre and will allow students to sharpen their acting, singing, and dancing skills with training in each area. Once the film is edited and ready for viewing, The QuaranTEAM Collective will be invited back to Theatre Memphis for a viewing party to see what they have created.

The QuaranTEAM Collective project is being conducted in partnership with youth filmmakers from Indie Memphis, an organization that supports the community through independent filmmakers; and CLOUD901 which is the Memphis Public Library and Information Center’s state-of-the-art social, creative, production, research and performance technology lab for teens. We are dedicated to creating an ensemble-based theatrical experience for our youth together with organizations like ours who are passionate about collaboration and youth creating art.
