Then there’s a pair of us—don’t tell!
They’d banish us, you know.”

We need your help! Would you please answer these questions in the first person.
For example...”When I hear the word peace, I think of a beautiful green meadow and a blue
sky. There is a cool breeze and a feeling of joy all around.”
Write answers to as many different questions as you can.
Write as much or as
little as you’d like, as long as it is at least one sentence. Be creative.
Think “as if” what you write will be spoken onstage as a part of a performance, or that it will become a song for children to sing about peace.
Do your best work and dig deep.
If you would like to be a part of this Musical Theatre Cluster Project this Summer,
please email Trish at firstname.lastname@example.org
