“The company is a registered charity, number 1002. It is run by teens who attend CedarBridge Academy and is heavily supported by their parents. They have published a book called Loud Souls, which makes them published authors. Loud Souls 2 represents a second opportunity for teens between the ages of 13-18 who aspire to be authors, poets or performing artists to have their original works published and performed. At this event there will be an opportunity for audience members to participate as well.”

“The company was formed by Tonya Ottley-Peets, Iyana Richards, Daliah Gibbs, Maya Peart, Samirah Muhummad and Lisbeth Alvarez. The voices of teens are seldom heard and so Loud Souls represents an opportunity for those voices to talk about what is on their minds and create original works adding to the volume of intellectual property that exists by teens.”

“This was a production that began after reading the book “Milk and Honey,” by Rupi Kaur, a young poet who became a million seller at the age of 24. It was showcased on May 11th, 2017. Audience members gave positive feedback about the production and this inspired the young people to create the Noire Youth Theatre Company.

“To date, they have created two Bermudian historical dramas, including ‘The Mary Prince Story’ and ‘The Sally Bassett Story,’ and they performed an original play called ‘What Happened to Sidney’ at the Fairmont Southampton Hotel for the A.M.E. Church Conference. Some of the students have become adept in technical theatre especially in lighting, set design and construction, and stage management.

“They are expanding their reach and are now inviting teens to apply to join the company. There is a registration fee of $35 and an audition process that teens must go through to join.“

    I attended this night of performances. I went on the Saturday evening. What was stunning, all the works were original pieces, and the young people spoke from the heart.
    One young man talked about women being wise about whom they chose to partner with, choose a man not for his looks, but for his ability to be a good father….deep!
    One young lady spoke about her complexion and being called names because of her increased melanin. One spoke about cutting, many spoke on love, one sent me to tears talking about family love.
    However, it wasn’t just the poets…the light technicians and sound technicians and directors were all young people. The show was run by young people from 14-18. They did a bang up job.
