ShoeString Community Players is diving into an epic summer with this heart-warming musical. As stated on http://www.helenon86th.com “Helen on 86th St.” is based on a short story that is taught in high school classrooms across the country. The musical follows Vita Calista, a vibrant and unique 12-year old girl, and her dreams of stardom when her drama class announces that they are producing The Trojan Horse as a play. Vita wants nothing more than to be Helen on stage, but obstacles are in her way. It’s a story of loss, longing and acceptance, as seen through the eyes of a young girl wise beyond her years. Like the epic Greek stories it interweaves, “Helen on 86th St.” carries a message of hope and redemption that resonates with people of all ages. Will Vita achieve her dream of playing Helen of Troy? You’ll have to come support Vita through her struggles at home, in the classroom, and on stage to find out!
