THE VOICES PROJECT is a theater musical based on the lives of Vermont teenagers. KCP interviewed more than 1000 teenagers and adapted their stories into a script. After the script was completed, approximately 20 Vermont teen composers wrote all the songs in the play. The project was underwritten by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont. In 2005, 21 teen actors from across Vermont toured the show to 13 towns in the state. The DVD presents the show’s final performance at Johnson State College, filmed by Vermont Public Television. It also features a bonus segment on the making of “Voices,” including interviews and a behind-the-scenes glimpse into workshops and rehearsals. The show is raw, real, humorous and illustrates the struggles, hopes, and dreams of teenagers from many walks of life. There are mature themes and language in the play, but the show is ultimately about the power and perseverance of young people struggling with peer pressure, body image, depression, love, friends and family.
