About

The Show:

Arts and Athletics Club is very excited to work on this purpose project, In My Head (An Original Musical).

The goal of this production is to promote our You're Not Alone initiative, a project where we raise awareness for mental health in our community. We are having artists paint lawn signs, community members sharing their mental health stories, and we will be performing In My Head, an original musical that discusses mental health and lets teens know that they are not alone. At the show, we will be partnering with local organizations to have resources available with information regarding mental health.

The major point of this show is to let Chester County youth that they are not alone. We are inviting high schoolers and middle schoolers from all over Chester County including but not limited to: Coatesville, Downingtown, Exton, West Chester, Malvern, Tredyffrin, Kennett, Unionville and more.

Rehearsal Location:

We will rehearse primarily at Grove United Methodist Church (490 Boot Rd, West Chester, PA 19380)

We have chose this as a central location so we can reach many surrounding areas.

Rehearsal Schedule: Please click here.

Note: Not everyone will be asked to attend every rehearsal. We will split things up to work on all parts of the show. Cast members will have the opportunity to send conflicts so we can plan around them. We want to build a flexible opportunity.

Performance Dates:

Our performance dates will be June 23rd and June 24th at Stetson Middle School

Plot:

In My Head tells the story of your every day high school. You have your popular kids, your punk rockers, your artists, and more. When a tenacious student, Becca, finds the results to the school mental health's survey, she realizes she needs to do something to make a change. She starts a new club at school for students to discuss mental health. While an unlikely team of students start the meetings awkwardly, the slowly learn more about each other and develop important bonds and actually start to enjoy the meetings. The school board, concerned that the club is making the district look like it has a major problem on its hands decides to shut down the club. Will Becca be able to save the club? And will the cancellation of the club cause too much irreparable damage for the students?
