Kaiser Permanente Community Weekend

Ghosted tells the story of four students as they navigate through a single day of high school. When one of them experiences a bout of anxiety and is sent to the counselor’s office, issues of friendship and honesty lead all of them to reveal hard truths about their personal experiences and lives. Following these disclosures, the characters brainstorm a collective path towards resiliency, personal strength and mutual support. Following the play, the cast will engage with student audiences in a conversation about resiliency. The objective of the conversation is to further examine the themes of the play, and offer students resources and additional information about a healthy personal growth.

This February, SCT will offer our community the opportunity to see this production on stage in our building and attend the workshops cooresponding to this show. In addition, we are showing Above Between Below, the KP touring show for grades 6-8.  Both shows are available to the public free of charge.

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), 20% of youth ages 13-18 live with a mental health condition.  Anxiety is the most common mental health disorder in the United States, affecting nearly one third of adolescents and adults. One in five youth ages 13-18 live with a mental health condition. Several key indicators point to a rising tide of anxiety and depression among young people.

Kaiser Permanente and Seattle Children’s Theatre have partnered to create Ghosted, for grades 9-12 to raise awareness about anxiety and depression and build resiliency. Students witness the journey of four young people and observe the ways they relate to and help each other. This can have a lasting impact on their lives. The program supports the Health Education Standards and Social Emotional Learning Benchmarks for Washington State Public Schools in areas of mental, emotional and social health.

Key concepts:

  • Discussing what you are going through with others is an important first step to getting help
  • Stigma causes people to feel ashamed about things that they cannot control
  • Depression and Anxiety are common and not anyone’s fault

The Educational Theater Program is free to qualifying schools. Now entering our second year of partnership, SCT and Kaiser Permanente’s Free Educational Theater Program has visited nearly 22,000 students and 2,100 Teachers statewide. The Educational Theater Program consists of touring productions, in class residencies, workshops and professional development opportunities for teachers and students alike. All of our programming is designed to inspire children, teens and adults to make informed decisions about their health and build stronger communities. 

Ghosted Production

This production is designed to perform in an assembly-like setting for audiences of up to 300 students. Following each show students will have an opportunity to participate in a discussion with the cast aimed to spark further conversation about how conflicts emerge and to brainstorm positive alternatives and outcomes.
