Local Teens spread their wings!

Thank you to the cast and our student director for a meaningful summer story.

Runaways is a collection of songs, dances, and monologues from runaway children. Based on interviews with homeless children and those in orphanages, Liz Swados’ musical interlaces songs about personal struggle and the world at large through the eyes of youth in New York City in the 70s. The show blends different musical styles from pop to hip-hop, jazz to reggae, while asking why children can’t remain children.
