About Rehearsal for Life
Rehearsal for Life, through the programming of the Freelance Players and Urban Improv, uses theater as a vehicle for social change, empowering young people through creativity, dialogue and performance. We have proudly served over 75,000 young people in Boston and beyond through our dynamic, interactive social and emotional learning programs.
Urban Improv is an interactive program for young people that uses structured improvisational theater workshops to strengthen social and emotional learning (SEL) skills and help students deal creatively with real-life challenges through dialogue and performance.
In 1992, Urban Improv was created by Freelance Players, Inc. in collaboration with the Boston Public Schools as a response to Boston’s escalating violence. Directed to youth in historically underserved communities, the program was initially modeled on the Living Stage, a successful community outreach program of Washington D.C.’s Arena Theatre.
