Drug Story Theater’s The Price You Pay delivers powerful, real-life stories direct from teens struggling with drug and alcohol abuse in a unique and innovative approach to prevention. The improvisational theater-style production integrates teens in recovery, their parents and information about adolescent brain development to inform and educate audiences. The work the teens do with Drug Story Theater aids in their progress and encourages them to lead productive, healthy lives as young adults. Sharing their stories about the seduction and addiction to substances also helps them sow seeds of prevention, especially among peers. “They are addicts, recovering ones, taking their stories onstage in the hope others will shun the path they chose,” says Drug Story Theater founder Dr. Joseph Shrand. Join us for this compelling and timely production.
