About Stargate Theatre: A Defining Act

Stargate Theatre: A Defining Act is a documentary film that shares the story of the Stargate Theatre Company, a groundbreaking program that immerses court-involved youth in the theater arts as a mechanism for coping with and overcoming negative factors in their lives. Founded by the prestigious Manhattan Theatre Club, Stargate provides its members with transitional employment, work-readiness training and literacy education in a creative theatrical environment. Told through the voices of the Stargate company members, along with the teaching artists and professionals who lead them, Stargate Theatre: A Defining Act follows these young men from auditions to the final performance of their original play, “Deeper than Skin.”
