Steel Script Troupe: Come & Experience The Disconnect
We had an opportunity to attend the Spring showcase by the Steel Script Troupe earlier this semester, titled "Come & Experience The Disconnect".
The Steel Script Troupe is a poetry group that began last year with the help of 2nd Lt Cydnee Reese, a 2017 grad from the Academy.
There are also many supporting roles as well including the Stage Knights, these cadets act as stagehands for the shows and special assistants. All in all this troupe has a big involvement from cadets and is a fantastic fresh way for cadets to communicate with each other.
Below is a video of the entirety of their first showcase, each skit has been created to make the audience think. Viewer discretion is advised before watching, so please read below.
"The scenes that are about to follow do not necessarily reflect the opinions or beliefs of the poets of Steel Script Troupe. This is an expression of art and a display of perceptions that are very real in the world."
