IT’S EASY – The Friend Strong Musical

IT’S EASY is open to children ages 10 – 12 and in grades 5 through 7 only. We are doing something unique this spring as we present a moving, original musical called IT’S EASY – which deals with the profound impact that bullying has on our young people today. The setting is in a Middle School. This musical was written by this years Gala Honorees (in November), January Akselrad and Jennifer Young, honored for their international efforts to help children who have been bullied. Those children receive much-needed peer support through their Be A Friend Project. Those auditions will be in early March.  (The show is in late May)  Stay tuned for more information about that.

The auditions will be posted in mid-February so make sure you check back to reserve your audition time slot! The actual audition times will be for early March.

We are looking forward to the spring. We know that you may have questions going forward. Please do not hesitate to reach out.

Laurie Walton, Director of the Performing Arts, will be directing IT’S EASY.  The rest of the team is TBA.

Thanks for your continued support.  Can’t wait to see the children so soon!
