Act Like a Grrrl (a program of Actors Bridge) is truly a transformative model. Grrrls are called to be their best selves by mentors--artists, entrepreneurs, writers, community organizers and leaders. But the community that emerges is what makes the program truly outstanding.
I have worked with ALAG locally, nationally and internationally for over a decade now. I have seen girls and women transform. I've seen them not only change how they relate to themselves, but also to the world around them. They are strong, curious individuals that know how to explore their own depths while trusting that they have a place in the world that will support and nourish what they find in themselves. There's a reason I have helped facilitate this program for so long. One can not stand by and simply lead, I learn from them as much as they learn from us. It is a beautiful process that every grrrl can benefit from.
my daughter participated in the "Act like a GRRRL" program and she loved it. The final show was insightful, thought-provoking, and validating for all the girl participants. Fantastic program!
I've had the pleasure of working with Actor's Bridge Ensemble over the last 13 years as both a donor and a participant in the classes and programs offered by ABE. My daughter spent five years as part of the Act Like A GRRRL program and was it truly transformational for her as she journeyed through adolescence. ABE is a tremendous organization offering unique and empowering programs and theater to our community and beyond.
I went to the Act Like a GRRRL final performance and was blown away by the girls' performances, their work, what they had learned in the program, and how profoundly it clearly impacted their lives. I wish I had access to a program like Act Like a GRRRL when I was an adolescent! I really admire the Actors Bridge Ensemble Theater's work and their mission to give back through theater.
Amazing performance!! So inspiring. So impressed by the Act Like A Grrrl performance.
Went to their 'Act like a GRRRL' show. Amazing!! Highly recommend for women to participate in, or at least go see!!
I have donated to this non-profit for over 5 years. Both of my nieces have participated in the Act Like a GRRRL program for multiple years. They have become more confident, out going young people, who have found their voices and authored their own lives.
My experience working as a co-leader with Act Like a GRRRL has been nothing short of amazing. I love getting to
Make a difference in these GRRRLS lives, and I love even more that they're making a difference in my life.
My daughter's life has been changed in such a positive because of her experience at Actor's Bridge Act Like A GRRRL!" we are so grateful that she was awarded a scholarship so that she was able to attend. Can't say enough about this magical program!!!
My first exposure to Actors Bridge Ensemble was through the Act Like A Grrrl program. This program provides a platform for teenage grrrls to share their voice and stories with their community. The entire Actors Bridge Ensemble wraps their love around this program- with the set up of the performance space, spreading the word to the community, sharing their wisdom and time, and sitting front row to cheer on these grrrls. The ability for the leadership team to shepherd a group of teenage grrrls, help the grrrls write a full script after a week at camp, spend four days in rehearsal and then produce three incredible professional grade performances to a full audience is nothing short of impossible- but these folks will tell you, they specialize in the impossible. Well done!
Actors Bridge's Act Like a GRRRL has helped dozens of middle school and high school girls develop a great sense of self and confidence through performance and leadership. This small-group program has changed the lives of many young people both in Tennessee and around the country.
Every performance is professional and the material is always thought provoking.
