Tess Paras works with The Unusual Suspects Theatre Company and just emailed me about a show they are doing at Probation Camp Miller, a juvenile detention center in Malibu, on Saturday, September 28th at 1:30pm. The organization is dedicated to using theater and performance arts to encourage at-risk youth to explore personal and social conflicts and develop self-esteem, communication and coping skills to make positive life choices and become productive members of the community.
From Tess:

This program has been proven to decrease recidivism and helps prevent further gang involvement. You can help by simply being an audience member. Hanging out with these young men is more valuable to them than you may think, as they don’t get to meet lots of real-life, professional performers in their tough lives and connecting with them for few minutes leaves an impression that lasts a lifetime.

If you’re interested in seeing the show or participating, contact Tess via email by 6pm Thursday Aug 29 (that’s today) to let her know you are attending. She need names a month early due to probation department clearances.
I think this is a great way to support some kids who are trying to figure things out. We’ll be going to the show and I hope you can make it!
