2:00 pm: A Place To Be (for all ages but particular interest to teens) is a musical about finding a place inside and outside of yourself that makes you feel safe, loved and heard. Everyone searches for a place to be in this world, especially when you are a teenager. This powerful production was written and created by teens who want to express themselves and inspire others to do the same.
2:45 pm: Leo The Lightning Bug (for all ages but particular interest to children) is the littlest lightning bug around. No matter how hard he tries he cannot get his light to shine. Embarrassed and distraught he runs away to a dark cave. There he meets a friend who shows him it's okay to be different. WIth encouragement from his family, a chance meeting with a butterfly, and a terrible storm, he discovers his worth and his courage!
3:30 pm: How Far I've Come (for all ages and adults) is a musical journey into the heart of Amy, a teenage girl who sees her cerebral palsy not as a disability, but as a gift to teach others about acceptance. Amy takes us into her dreams where she is a graceful dancer and a fluid runner. Humorous and sincere, the show makes you question, think, and laugh. Amy helps us understand that we are all different but we all live beneath the same sky.
