The Appetizer is pre-show experience designed for high school students by high school students from A.R.T.’s Youth Action Team. Before a performance of Life of Pi, participants will enjoy refreshments and engage in a guided conversation around the themes of the play and the Essential Question: How does telling stories help us cope and survive?

Participants will receive a free ticket to attend Life of Pi after the event.


The Youth Action Team (Y.A.T.) is a paid, year-long program beginning this summer for incoming high school juniors that develops leadership skills through original creative arts producing. Participants are forming a community of like-minded peers and industry connections as they design and implement their own arts initiatives in collaboration with A.R.T.’s values and programming. Y.A.T. members will leave the program equipped and inspired to become change-makers in their communities.
