About

Social Justice Theater of the Carolinas (SJTC) is currently comprised of alumni of Pittsboro Youth Theater which also calls Sweet Bee Theater home. Discussions after Parkland made clear that these young people were interested in applying their theatrical skills for more than entertainment. Colombinusis a play by the United States Theatre Project written by Stephen Karam and PJ Paparelli. SJTC chose this play to commemorate the lives lost in Columbine High School and all school shootings. This play is important because it deftly unites rather than divides. Instead of focusing on hot-button topics like gun control, Columbinus focuses on what we can do to promote conversation around how we treat one another. Thanks to a grant from Manbites Dog Theater Fund, these performances will be free to all school employees.
