Developed by the 13-16 year-old members of The Arts Effect All-Girl Theater Company (Winner of Most Outstanding Ensemble, Fringe 2008; Best Theater Group of Kids/Teens in NYC, Nickelodeon 2010), FACEBOOK ME is the SOLD OUT smash hit of the season, delving deep into one of the hottest, most talked about, highly debated topics in the news today…teens on Facebook.
Six million girls ages 13-15 are on Facebook leaving countless adults to ponder what it’s like to come of age in the iGeneration. FACEBOOK ME is a shockingly real look into the lives of ten teen girls as they attempt to navigate the excitement and embarrassment, the shame and the success of their adolescence online…where status is so much more than an update. A witty comment, a suggestive photograph, a scandal revealed – nothing is too sacred nor too personal in the goal to garner "likes" and be liked. Directed by Katie Cappiello and Meg McInerney, co-founders of The Arts Effect NYC, and scripted by Katie Cappiello, FACEBOOK ME bravely explores the secret lives of teens online.
The Arts Effect’s holiday mission – inspire girls to raise awareness and empower their fellow girls through theater! 100% of the proceeds from the FACEBOOK ME Holiday Weekend will benefit FAIR Girls.
