Since 2007, Bedlam Theater and the Brian Coyle Community Center have partnered to create the Cedar-Riverside Drama Club for Youth – a venue for neighborhood youth to process their lives, celebrate their communities, explore their cultural identity, find commonality with youth from other cultures, and voice their opinions.

On Wednesday August 19th, they held their end of summer 2009 youth theatre programing extravaganza. Included in the event were stilt walking performances, an Urban Safari Parade that included puppets, masks and musical performances, and a spoken word show at Bedlam Theater.
Despite the rainstorm, the event kicked off with much energy and the participants didn’t let the rain, rain on their parade. The parade was held inside of the Brian Coyle Community Center with a quick interval outside when the rain tapered off.
