S1 Episode 8: Culture Points with Brian Guehring


“I’m very excited because in my job, not only do I personally get to be creative and do fun things, but I also feel that the work we’re doing is making a difference in our community. Whether it’s teaching a young person and helping them with their self-confidence, or creating a platform for queer youth to talk to parents and talk to teachers and talk to administrators about what’s going on…that is so important.” – Brian Guehring

In this week’s episode, host Michele Tuck-Ponder sits down with Brian Guehring, Playwright-in-Residence/Literary Manager at the Omaha Theater Company and Co-Founder of the Pride Players. Brian tells us about how his family’s “culture points” led to his creative pursuits and shares his playwriting process. Brian and Michele also discuss Pride Players, the award-winning teen theatre troupe that uses improvisation and storytelling to explore LBGTQ+ issues that impact today’s youth.
