"THIS IS ME!" will provide all of us, our children, teens, adults, staff, and volunteers, with a time to shine on stage; a time for us to see each individual for who they are, sharing their unique talents and showing what they really CAN do. "THIS IS ME!" is a full-stage production including many arrt forms; dance; comedic skits; singing; monologues; a multi-media projection; as well as performances from renowned, talented local artists.
