“These kids  are committed leaders and multi-talented! They have balanced practicing for this play along with their other commitments which include spring sports, gymnastics, private music and dance lessons. I am so blessed to have a team of volunteers to pull this play together. We have all overcome obstacles including sicknesses, weather, schedules and a birth. Just as with the story line, we look forward to the hope that comes with knowing ‘Tomorrow is Only A Day Away.’ I am so excited to see them shine on stage!”
