Letters to Daddy: The Musical Key to Bully-Free graced the stage at Newburgh Free Academy recently for nearly 2,000 fifth and sixth grade students in the Newburgh Enlarged City School District. The event was sponsored by Edible Arrangements of Newburgh.
The Letters to Daddy ensemble cast is comprised of students from across Orange County, including three student-actresses from the NECSD, whose combined voices deliver a powerful message about the struggles that many students face growing up in today’s world and the pressures often placed on students both in school and at home. Topics such as bullying, peer influence and becoming a positive member of today’s society captured the essence of the characters’ efforts to maintain balance in their lives despite obstacles that come along the way.
The theatrical performance was designed to empower children through inspirational songs, peer-to-peer influence and collaboration to resolve challenging issues and help create a better world for everyone.
