‘The students have enjoyed working on the play, and embrace its activism.” Dr. Easterling

The cast has been so gracious as to give us a sneak peak from their rehearsals as they prepare to spread the message via this play. They plan to utilize counselors at their school to answer any questions at the conclusion of the play. What a great way to start the dialogue that may change or save a life. #BreakLegs and thanks for using the Arts for Activism!  #Theatre4Change
