Prime Stage Theatre Offers Public Performance of Teen Dating Awareness Program YOU BELONG TO ME, 11/7

Prime Stage Theatre proudly presents the Highmark sponsored Teen Dating Awareness Program. The multi-faceted platform raises awareness, encourages, and provides the tools and resources for teens, parents and educators through the arts.

The one-hour presentation includes the theatrical production of You Belong to Me, an original script written by Debbie Lamedman, in collaboration with Gary Shaw, a teacher at Pittsburg High School in Kansas and his high school students. It is a blend of a first-hand testimony from Ms. Jodi Cuccia, whose daughter was the victim of dating violence, and a theatrical experience.

The program concludes with a Q&A session where the audience gets the opportunity to share their thoughts and ask questions with the cast, teachers and Ms. Cuccia. The program includes local resources that the audience can contact immediately and confidentially.

There will be a public performance on Nov. 7 at 7pm. The performance will be held at the New Hazlett Theater located at 6 Allegheny Square East. Donations accepted.

TDA is endorsed by Futures Without Violence, a national organization whose mission is to prevent and end violence against women and children around the world.
