New Expression has been loving the recent heat wave in Atlanta! Our NXP youth in Clarkston got a break from the cold weather for some playtime outside doing sports, dance, and art with new friends. It was a great way to start off the new year!
New Expression Atlanta
Recently, New Expression Atlanta performed its final musical under the RATCo name. High School Musical Jr. was performed on November 20th and 21st at McIntosh High School in Peachtree City, GA. With a cast of over 50 volunteers and students, it was a high-energy, fun-filled show all about Breaking Free from high school’s status quo.
In High School Musical, the lead character Troy Bolton discovers a new found freedom when he takes the stage and decides to audition for the Spring Musical. True to the character he played, Micah Stuart also found his voice through New Expression.
Kids Express Atlanta hit the stage with their first live performance, Punchinello (based on You Are Special by Max Lucado). The crew performed at McIntosh High School in Peachtree City on November 20th and 21st. The story of Punchinello follows a wooden person (or wemmick) who can’t seem to do anything right. The whole town laughs at him and judges him until he starts to discover that if he spends time with the wood carver who made him, he begins to be able to be free from what people think of him.
Here is a layout of each background.
