Word Warriors Presents: BREAKING OUT OF THE BLUE

11/13/2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Join us for the Word Warriors Ensemble’s newest, original musical… 

After several months in an IYC facility, Mack and Leeann are going home. He can’t wait to play his Xbox and spend time with his little brother. She looks forward to taking a bubble bath and reconnecting with her mom. However, their dreams quickly meet reality when starting over is not as easy as they hoped. In the aftermath of incarceration, what will it take for these teens to find family and acceptance? Breaking Out of the Blue is our Word Warriors annual musical at IYC-Warrenville based on the true stories of the youths in residence there.
