TARGETS is a new collaborative play focusing on the American history of targeting specific API communities for prejudice and racism. Historical figures, celebrity impressions, and new characters, along with short segments from various past Asian Story Theater shows are included. Real issues, but this is entertainment not a lecture. Think of it as history as a Variety Show! Join the cast of community members and favorite AST performers who volunteered to help tell this dark narrative, mixing ironic humor and original music into the telling. TARGETS is now online at the Asian Story Theater Youtube channel. Click TARGETS PROGRAM above for show information.
