The Big Picture

IMG 0681


April 9-12, 2018 at the McGlohon Theater

The Big Picture is a dynamic health education and community outreach initiative that is solely written and performed by and for adolescent youth.  Based on data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Youth Risk Behavior Survey, this youth initiative addresses the current trends and health related issues facing teenagers today, with a focus on positive behavioral and health choices.

Every year we transport high school health students to the theater to watch a daytime performance of this important play. The students are able to learn about healthy behaviors and hear from their peers on ways to address health and safety issues that may be impacting them. Parents and community members are also invited and encouraged to attend one of our evening performances.
