Act Up & Vote!

Act Up & Vote!

Available now for touring!

Youth Underground (YU) is an ensemble that creates and performs original theater that investigates social issues relevant to young people, and inspires them to make a difference in their communities. Our pieces are created through a series of interviews with the community. In Summer 2018, our interviews centered around Voting and Civic Engagement, and Act Up & Vote! was born. In Summer 2024, the script was updated with additional interviews to discuss the importance of voting in the year’s upcoming election season.
