The 2023-2024 Get Lit Players

June 15, 2023

After a robust audition process, we’re so excited to announce our 16 new and returning Get Lit Players: Marlee Porter, Heidi Lopez, Emi Sakamoto, Naomi Farkas, Jonathan Smith, Jada Leung, Kaya Sparnicht, Jasmine Minchez, Ella Small, Gabby Wong, Maxine Moriwaki, Abby G., Pluto Saidkariev, Lila Abercrombie, Olivia Le, and Bri Macklin! 

The Get Lit Players (GLPs) are our award-winning performance troupe of youth poets. They’ve performed at the United Nations, Hollywood Bowl, Lincoln Center and White House — to name a few! Every year they perform live for over 50,000 of their peers, and their videos have been watched online over 300 million times.

Each of our Get Lit Players will spend the next year honing their skills and enjoying exciting and unique workshops, paid performance and networking opportunities, and a lifetime of support from Get Lit’s community. And these experiences open doors – 100% of our GLPs go to colleges, and over 80% receive scholarships.

This new cohort of Get Lit Players represents the best of Los Angeles’ young artistic energy. We’re so excited to watch them grow and create over the next year!
