January 25 - February 24

at the Milwaukee Youth Arts Center (GA) Directions

Lonnie Collins Motion has had some tough breaks in his young life. When he discovers a passion for writing poetry, he finds a way to express his feelings about the foster system, his friends, and his school, while sharing his unique perspective on the world. Lyrically weaving together Lonnie’s past and present life, this poignant story reveals one boy’s journey of hope from tragedy to a brighter future. 

Performance runtime is approximately 75 minutes with no intermission. Suggested for families with young people ages 9 - 17+
