Back in the 1970's, the Upstairs Youth Agency was formed to work with teens from the 3rd, 11th, and 13th wards of the city. One focus of the agency was putting on plays, written by Tony Falzano, to encourage and uplift the teens. Decades later, in 2011, the teens that took part in the program decided to get back together. They reunited as the Second Time Around Players to perform a new Falzano musical. Now the Players are back, and will put on an original musical by Falzano. The musical revolves around the themes of hope, faith, and love, and works to inspire today's teens.
The show will be held on Thursday and Friday, March 27-28 at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, March 29, at 3 & 7:30 p.m. at the Geva Theatre Center (75 Woodbury Blvd). Tickets cost $20 and proceeds go to Hope Hall and Geva Theatre Center's Youth Programs. For more information, visit gevatheatre.org or call 232-4382.
