Click here to reserve your no-cost seats for Angst at the Fox Theatre on Tuesday, September 18 at 7:30-9pm. All RCSD parents, teachers, community members, and students ages 10 and up are invited.
Angst is a documentary designed to raise awareness around anxiety with an emphasis on youth and families. The film includes interviews with kids, teens, experts and parents. The goal specifically is to help people identify and understand the symptoms of anxiety and encourage them to reach out for help.
This event is made possible by the generous support from the Fox Theatre, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, Redwood City School District and Roy Cloud PTO.
