So, why a Musical in Newtown? We, as a community, have a responsibility to the children affected by the events of 12.14. We will give them tools for creative expression, innovation, and confidence that will spill over into every other aspect of their lives. The performing arts lies in the core of every human being and is the essence of who we are…….. It is a first grader; to sing, dance, pretend, and to laugh out loud at the simplest things in life. This is the first of many collaborations between the world’s best and the incredible local community of Newtown aimed at having our children and those around the globe reach their potential.
