Episode 2: Christopher Limber & Rachel Tibbetts, Prison Performing Arts

On Episode 2, Lindsay and Nicole had the honor of interviewing Rachel and Chris from Prison Performing Arts (PPA). PPA involves incarcerated youth and adults in the performing arts to inspire intellectual curiosity and personal development. They nurture the discipline, teamwork and communication skills necessary for successful re-entry into society. PPA encourages members of the larger community to connect personally with program participants, offering continuing programs for participants who have been released.

On this episode, Rachel & Chris talk about ah-ha moments in prison, their view of St. Louis as an “arts center,” and how they see theatre as a vehicle for human transformation.
