About the event
With input from Arts Academy at Pueblo County High students, the play has since been revised to include discussion about modern issues affecting student mental health including bullying of LGBTQ students, eating disorders like bulimia nervosa, growing up in poverty, and isolation related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The play is inclusive of safe messaging. Following each production, licensed therapists from Spark the Change Colorado are available for audience members to anonymously text and receive immediate counseling. Spark the Change Colorado is a statewide mental wellness program with a Pueblo location at 635 W. Corona Ave.
The Arts Academy at Pueblo County High School is planning future performances in Pueblo School District 60 schools. The academy also is in the process of arranging performances outside of the Pueblo area including in Salida, Walsenburg, Crested Butte and Colorado Springs.
"Everywhere we've gone ... when we tell people about it, they are like, 'Can you bring this to our community?'" said Kennedy Pugh, Executive Director, Colorado Arts & Artist Associates, Mental Health Liaison District 70. "Over and over again that's what they are saying and we are just really excited."
