HEAD. HEART. COURAGE.

Anything can happen when you mix a very messy room with a very big imagination! Soda cans have heartbeats and dirty socks can dance. Join ShoWagon for a brand new adventure based on a familiar tale. HEAD. HEART. COURAGE. looks at THE WIZARD OF OZ through the eyes of Dottie, a young girl who is learning to be brave in a new home. Fasten your seatbelts! Put on your dancing shoes and hop on board for our wild journey!
 

CREATE: JOURNEY OF A STORYTELLER

Journey of a Storyteller: Please join T-Remedi of Inner City South as he takes a reflective journey using spoken word poetry to find his voice as a storyteller.  T-Remedi deals with the Evolution of Dreams, Self Reflection and The Power of Words. T-Remedi uses spoken word, hip-hop and crowd participation to captivate and educate future storytellers how to Dream, Focus and Never Give Up.

 
 

SPEAK

SPEAK is a performance group of Melrose High School students made of rappers, dancers, writers, and poets. In the students' own words, SPEAK is "A group of people who create positive work to impact the world." Our aim is to examine relevant social issues through the lens of art.
 
Due to the students' school schedule, booking is limited, but please contact us if your are interested. We are excited to have these young people perform for other students and will do our best to work with your scheduling needs. After school and weekend performances are also possible.
