Pin Points Theatre uses the process of theater to teach the use of attitudes, skills and resources that lead to successful lives. We apply this mission especially to youth-at-risk in the D.C. area. The skills of auditions call for the same skills that job interviews require. Directing actors is the same as supervising employees. Coordinating tasks of actors and stage crews require the same organizational skills required in assigning jobs to employees. Paying performers brings in the business principles of accounting. Promoting shows is in line with marketing principles of selling any product. Managing a theater company requires the same skills necessary for running a corporation. Abstinence from sex, drugs and violence increases a young persons' chances for success in theater as well as in life. ACTING is simply the ACT of communicating, i.e., using facial expressions, body language, and articulation to send a message that causes someone to ACT, reACT, or take ACTion. According to recent police department statistics, cited in the Washington Post (S. Weichselbaum, 7/24/03), "eighty percent of DC's homicides occur East of the River and parts of nearby northeast Washington." This rate is comparable to the rate of drug arrests and teen sexual activity, which is considerably high across the city. Our programs use the lure of the performing arts to open youth to alternative after-school activities as well as lessons in alternative behavior that encourage abstinence from sex, drugs, and violence.
