“There will be times when you walk into a room and no one there is quite like you…” and so opens The Day You Begin by National Book Award and Newbery Honor winning author of Brown Girl Dreaming, Jacqueline Woodson. This highly-acclaimed, lyrical picture book by the National Ambassador for Young People’s literature debuts on our stage in the spring. Capture the courage with us to take those first steps into a place where nobody knows you and yet somehow you open the door and walk in. There are lots of reasons to feel different but this world premiere musical celebrates the bravery it takes to venture forth into something new.
