High School in the Community performers give flight to 'Urban Dreams'

"Urban Dreams" Cast and Crew - High School in the Community, New Haven, Conn.

Upcoming Performance: "Urban Dreams"

Location: Hight School in the Community, 175  Water St., New Haven, Conn.
Date: 6 p.m. Monday, June 18

The Urban Dreams production will address "the everyday issues  that teenagers face inside & outside the classrooms. Through a story of explosive Rap & Hip-Hop lyrics, soulful singing, live music & spoken word, these teens will confront issues such as violence, relationships, media, teacher student conflicts, faith and more; dealing with harsh realities of growing up in environments that feel more like warzones, these teens strive to re-define Urban Dreams," says director Frank E. Brady.

From the minds of the talented students of High School In the Community comes   “Urban Dreams,” a cutting edge play created by teenagers in New Haven that combines comedic outlooks, gripping performances and spell binding  monologues.

I am a close friend of Frank's, and it brings joy to my heart to see him excel in a manner such as "Urban Dreams." I am glad God gave him the creativity to make this production an opening reality to what students go through in the classrooms and in life.. I know that Frank, and the cast of "Urban Dreams" will go far because of the obstacles they've face to get where they are going.. I want to congradulate Frank and say.... "The best is yet to come..." Love you Frank..
