One of SourceWorks' three programming arms is its YouthReach program, a theatre-in-education project that develops and tours innovative plays and musicals for young people addressing specific health or social issues. YouthReach productions are designed to be a proactive and entertaining way to educate students to the ever-changing world around them while inciting thought and discussion on a particular issue.
For the YouthReach program, we've scoured the theatrical world for scripts with intrinsic educational value that avoid being didactic or talking down to youth. Rather, we produce work that is youth-friendly: compelling, relevant and immediate.
Currently, YouthReach is booking performances of the East Coast premiere of The Other Side Of The Closet, Edward Roy's critically acclaimed teen drama about teen homophobia.
SourceWorks Theatre in a professional theatre company based in New York City.

Since inception, SourceWorks has produced a variety of critically acclaimed works in New York City such as "The Velocity Of Gary (Not His Real Name)" with Danny Pintauro (from TV's "Who's The Boss?") in both New York and San Francisco, and "Fairy Tales," a new musical revue which transferred to off-Broadway's WPA Theatre after its intial run.
