MONEY MATTERS is Youth Underground’s new play project. Developed in partnership and supported by Cambridge Savings Bank, MONEY MATTERS seeks to provide an interactive way to engage intergenerational audiences in a dialogue about money and financial education. In Summer 2011 the Youth Underground Ensemble and staff interview each other, family, neighbors, community leaders, and financial experts, asking questions like, “What has been your best purchase? Do you consider yourself a saver or a spender? How is having money important for happiness?” MONEY MATTERS captures the stories generated from these questions. Stories from REAL PEOPLE—real students, bankers, government leaders, teachers, parents, business owners, community workers.

Youth Underground serves youth ages 13-18 with stipend eligible opportunities to create theater together and in tandem with community-based organizations; and to showcase their work throughout the city, Greater Boston, and at Central Square Theater. Youth Underground holds both an academic year program and intensive summer residency with an annual Ensemble of 30 members. Youth Underground showcases work through performances, a youth driven Community Dialogue Series, and peer exchanges with local and global organizations. Past and current community partnerships include peer exchanges with the Al-Rowwad Theater and Cultural Center, True Colors: OUT Youth Theater; CCTV Teen Media Summer Institute, and Community Art Center’s ‘DIYDS National Film Festival’.
