When you see injustice… STAND!

When you feel like you can’t go on… STAND!

When you know something is wrong… STAND!

When others will not… prove them wrong & STAND!

STAND will explore social justice issues pulled from today’s culture and headlines! This Broadway-style production will leave the audience mesmerized, self-reflective, and motivated to make a STAND! The original story will highlight resilience through peer pressure, bullying, parent expectations, social media, cultural identity, mental health, safety, and love.

The story takes place in a classroom lock-down after students witness an event and refuse to come forward. Each character is forced to confront their choices, retrace their past, and face their humanity. These stories are told and intertwined with dynamic dances, poetry, and inspirational songs that give the audience a refreshing take on a musical.

We STAND with Hartford Youth… Where do you STAND!
