GirlSpeak culminates with a public performance of an original theater piece created through improvisation, acting and writing exercises and a tour of performances featuring peer-to-peer workshops on devised theater to local high schools. Girlspeak meets Mondays and Wednesdays, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
