Now at The Alliance Hip-Hop musical for middle and high school students

The Alliance Theatre is pleased to announce its next production for middle and high school audiences, Paige in Full.  Paige in Full blends poetry, dance, media and music to tell the tale of a multicultural girl’s journey through hip-hop to self-discovery. Since its premiere in May 2010, Paige Hernandez’s “visual mix-tape” has sold out performances throughout the country and garnered praise from critics and audiences alike for its energy, intelligence, and originality.  Examining ideas on how ethnicity and pop-culture shape our identity, Paige In Full tells a personal, yet universal story for youth and adult audiences.

Although Paige in Full has been performed all over the country, the Atlanta version will include the fresh perspectives of middle and high school students who participated in the Alliance Theatre summer drama camps with Paige Hernandez.  Seventh grade student Hannah Hubbert said, “When students come to see this show, they see their friends, they see themselves, they see situations that they have gone through.  Stories like this help to show them that anything is possible.  Students from different lives will see it and will learn that no matter what’s going on in your crazy life, what bad or good things have happened, that they are not alone.”

OUR PERFORMANCES ONLY – OCT 6 & 13, 1:00 & 3:30 P.M.
