The performers are from all over the city, and they represent various groups, such as the Gantt R-Center Theater Group and Voices of the Youth (V.O.T.Y.). Featured theater productions include "The Freedom of the City," a work by Irish playwright Brian Friel (July 23), and "12 Angry Men," a drama about a group of jurors overseeing a homicide trial (July 24).

There will be a community showcase of teen dancers, singers, musicians, and visual artists (July 25 and 26). Polite Ink. Sketch & Improv will also hold a youth improv workshop (July 26).
