Fuse Theatre Audition Information
Wednesday, OCTOBER 9, 2019
TYA Touring Production (Local tour – no overnight)
Lily’s Wings , a bilingual (Spanish/English) touring play, follows the story of Lily, a middle school student, and her older sister’s friend as they are targeted by a “boyfriend” trafficker. The play brings awareness to the issue of trafficking and one way young people are targeted. While the subject area is serious, the play is appropriate for youth. A brief overview of human-trafficking will precede the play and support by community partners will be available. Directed by Stacey Ardelean.
