The Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble (CLYTE) is a group of teen artists and activists from the Austin area who use theatre as a tool to help their community foster healthy relationships, celebrate diversity, and engage in important community issues.
The Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble is a unique and exciting collaborative program between SafePlace and Creative Action. It was created to train youth leaders to generate their own creative solutions to societal issues. For over 10 years, the Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble has toured schools, conferences, and community events all across Austin and the surrounding areas to spark dialogue about teen relationships and encourage youth to take a stand against dating violence, sexual harassment, and bullying.
In 2014-2015 we performed to over 3,500 people in Central Texas! We invite you to book the Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble for your school or event in Spring 2016!
