Pride Players: A Rose Teens ‘N’ Theater Production

Pride Players is celebrating its 21st year! Pride Players educates, entertains and inspires activism in our audiences of teens, parents, teachers and community members. The group uses improvisation to create songs, poetry, monologues, and skits that explore what it means to be a gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer or ally teen in Omaha. The group has been honored by many groups including The National Education Association, Heartland Pride, and American Alliance for Theater and Education.
