We Go Together: Broadway in Three Acts

 

ALPHARETTA  (April 20th, 2018) – 20 teens with developmental and learning differences from around the metro-Atlanta area will be putting on a series of three musical theatre vignettes Friday night (April 20th) at 7:00PM at Alpharetta High School in Alpharetta, Georgia.  The performance is free and open to the public and press.

The teens, part of the “Any Dream Will Do” performing arts group, have been preparing for the show since September and features teens from Fulton, Forsyth, and Gwinnett Counties. All performers have developmental and learning differences.  The show will feature singing, dancing, and acting in both solo and group performances through highlights of three classic musicals: The Music Man, The Wizard of Oz, and Grease.

This group is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for adolescents with special needs that share a common love of music, dancing and theatre, to come together on weekly basis, and learn through social interactions, improvisation and expressive arts therapy.  

“Any Dream Will Do” is celebrating its sixth annual performance and is organized by The George Center Foundation.

The George Center Foundation is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization that provides scholarships to families, organizations, and programs which are unable to finance music therapy services for those in need.

All participants have audio/visual releases on file.  Contact Jamie George, founder of The George Center for Music Therapy, Inc. at Jamie@thegeorgecenter.com or by calling (347) 351-2703.
