On Jan. 27, 2020, Cry Havoc Theater Company held the first meeting of a new initiative called the Teen Critics Program. The pilot program is in partnership with the site you're reading, TheaterJones.com, which for 11 years has covered the Dallas-Fort Worth/North Texas area performing arts scene.
The first meeting, as you can see in the photo above taken at Cry Havoc's home base at the Common Desk, a co-working space in Deep Ellum, welcomed nearly 20 students who are interested in writing and learning more about the arts in North Texas, including visual art. We are partnering critics in the disciplines of theater, dance, classical music, opera, and visual art with the students, who will see various arts events through July 2020, and write critiques of what they viewed.
Cry Havoc will share some of the reviews on their website, and TheaterJones will publish the best from each event on our website. You can follow the prograss in our special section by clicking the TEEN CRITICS PROGRAM at the top left of this page.
We'll keep track of the reviews published here and on the CHTC website below.
